Almost 100 people turned out for a social event in showcasing the development of Toowoomba's new agtech hub.
TSBE Food Leaders Australia facilitated the Meet Up on March 18, which marked the first public viewing of the Agtech and Logistics Hub home at FKG's Witmack Precinct which will grow the agricultural value chain through the development of innovation and technology.
Interim director of AgriFood Connect Thomas Hall said the hub was an exciting new initiative for regional Queensland and the strong turn out demonstrated the relevance and attraction of the Agtech and Logistics Hub to the agribusiness community.
"It's really encouraging to see such a good roll-up, thanks to all our partners in delivering this wonderful event," he said.
TSBE Food Leaders Australia general manager Bruce McConnel said it was exciting to showcase the hub's temporary location and facilities, direct to industry.
"This is effectively the space now available for entrepreneurs and Agtech people to come together and work, free of charge while we're in this location," said Mr McConnel.
The hub is jointly funded by the Queensland Government in association with the FKG Group, TSBE, University of Southern Queensland and the University of Queensland.
