INDOOR AG-CON ASIA

ABOUT THE 3RD ANNUAL INDOOR AG-CON ASIA

Indoor Ag-Con returned to Marina Bay Sands, Singapore in January 2018 for our 3rd Indoor Ag-Con Asia. The event once more included the best and the brightest of the Asian and Antipodean indoor agriculture scene, with two full days of conference proceedings and extended exhibition hall hours. We covered a broad range of crop types – such as, leafy greens, mushrooms and other vegetables and medicinal crops – as well as technologies ranging from artificial intelligence to LED lighting to control systems.  Participation rose by more than 20% on 2017 levels.


OUR EXHIBITION HALL

Our exhibition hall is combined with our conference area, and all participants have access to both. Here’s the layout and exhibitor list.
