The Fieldays Innovations Centre should be at the top of visitors' lists this year, say the organisers.

This is where inventors – from backyard to established companies – present their latest innovations on a global stage.

Fieldays has announced a new element to the 2016 Innovations line-up – the Fieldays Innovations Capital Event, partnered by Enterprise Angels.

Entrants will get to network with industry influencers, investors and agribusinesses in an effort to connect them with their targeted markets, says Gail Handricks, innovations event manager.

"Fieldays Innovations enjoys a high-level of exposure during the four days and the Capital Event will enable entrants to connect with investors to gain an understanding of what is required to attract investment."

Enterprise Angels executive director Bill Murphy says bringing innovators and investors together in the Capital Event is an opportunity for both sides.

"Innovations entrants seeking capital to drive their innovation forward will be given the opportunity to meet with experienced agribusiness investors at the event, and depending on investor interest shown, entrants will be invited to pitch for investment later in the year at the Fieldays Innovations pitch event."

The Capital Event will be held on Thursday June 16 from 4pm in the Innovations Centre.
