What's new this year:

The 5th room
We’re adding an additional space for discussion on some of the unspoken truths in sustainability. In these off-the-record sessions, we’ll ask attendees to share mistakes and freely speak their minds as we have pragmatic and honest conversation about the future.

Farmer focused
Only farmers can change farming. As a critical voice in these conversations, we’ll be incorporating more farmer perspectives throughout the two days to ensure the conversation is farmer focused and remains grounded in reality.  
Practical, focused problem solving
We’re taking a number of breakout sessions and revamping the format to utilise the full extent of the expertise in the room. This is to ensure we deliver real problem solving that tackles the critical business challenges and provides clear and practical outputs 

More networking, more connections
With increased schmoosing time, more side events and better networking options, we’re ensuring there’s the opportunity to make the connections that matter and build the partnerships that can really make a difference. 
“We see the Sustainable Commodities & Landscapes Forum as a key part of our intelligence-gathering and networking for sustainable land use."
"Engaging and PowerPoint-free panel discussions has proven to be a brilliant way to bring multiple perspectives to the current hot topics and what’s on the horizon."
"By offering the opportunity to meet industry peers, NGOs and regulators, the Forum gives us a rich outside-in viewpoint that is hard to find anywhere else.”
"The conference was very valuable use of my time; increasing my network, reminding me of some key areas of focus to consider and learning from others."

What’s different about this forum?

Innovation Forum is:
  • Candid: Entirely off-the-record discussion that enables open and honest disclosure from speakers and genuine participation from the audience.
  • Practical: A clear focus on the practical and actionable guidance that can drive change throughout industries and supply chains.
  • Focused: We provide enough time, resources and expertise to the issues that really matter. We don’t skate the surface, but get to the crux of the issues to provide in-depth, constructive discussion.
Innovation Forum is NOT:
  • A PR platform: Enthusiastic speakers are NOT given free rein to fill a session presenting their companies, allowing no time to actually get to the crux of the issues.
  • A talking shop: This is NOT an opportunity for a group people in a room to simply agree with everything said, regardless of outcomes.
  • All promise, no delivery: We will NOT promise what we can’t deliver. The issues covered are complex. They won’t be solved at a two-day conference. But we will help deliver progress through in-depth, constructive and practical advice around specific issues.
