INDOOR AG-CON ASIA

INTRODUCING THE 2ND ANNUAL INDOOR AG-CON ASIA

Indoor Ag-Con is returning to Asia in January 2017 with an expanded offering. We will once more host the best and the brightest in growing, supplying and advising the hydroponics, aquaponics and aeroponics market. This year, our two-day event will be hosted at Marina Bay Sands on January 24-25, 2017, and will include an exhibition hall and conference. Industry leading speakers from academia and industry will address topics from automating indoor farms to developing controls systems to funding an indoor farm. Participants will receive an exclusive hard copy of the newest edition in our popular white paper series, which have been downloaded more than 4,000 times. They will also have the chance to network at a drinks party on the first evening of the event.


INDOOR AG-FEST

For this year’s Indoor Ag-Con Asia, we’ve been thinking about the various forms of innovation that have come together to create the burgeoning indoor agriculture industry, from plant biology to design to new business models. In celebration of these diverse participants in the indoor agriculture market, we’ve created Indoor Ag-Fest, a series of events and activities around the theme of innovation leading up to Indoor Ag-Con Asia.


STARTUP WEEKEND SINGAPORE | JANUARY 20-22, 2017

We have collaborated with Startup Weekend Singapore to bring an indoor agriculture flavour to their next event on January 20-22, 2017 at the Google campus in Singapore. Startup Weekend is a 54-hour weekend event, during which groups of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, or presentation by Sunday evening. Interested in finding out more? Check out their website and sign up here.
