(MARCH 11, 2021) — With safety in mind, the Indoor Ag-Con management team has pushed the dates for its previously announced May 2021 agriculture trade show and conference for the indoor and vertical farming industry to October 4-5, 2021. In addition to the date shift, Indoor Ag-Con will also move from its former Las Vegas location to the Hilton Orlando in Florida for 2021, with plans to return to Las Vegas and co-locate with the National Grocers Association | NGA Show in 2022.
Better Alignment With Covid Vaccine Rollout
“By moving our event to October, we feel we’re better aligned with the expanding Covid-19 vaccine rollout. Growing confidence levels in travel and attendance at live events will also be important,” says Brian Sullivan, co-owner, Indoor Ag-Con. “Safety of our audience as priority one. We also wanted to find a new location and venue that offered easy accessibility. Cost-effective accommodations, as well as area activities – both indoor farming as well as entertainment-related – were factors, too. Orlando checked all the boxes.”
“Our 2021 move to the East Coast, coupled with Orlando’s appeal and convenience, also gives us the opportunity to expand our reach. We hope to attract new audiences of growers and start-ups from the region, too,” adds Nancy Hallberg, co-owner, Indoor Ag-Con.
