5TH ANNUAL INDOOR AG-CON

NETWORKING GALORE
Our participants join us from over a dozen countries and hail from vertical farming, greenhouse growing, outdoor ag, technology, academic, entrepreneurial, policy making and investment professions, so there are plentiful networking opportunities. Past attendees have met their first customer, new business partners and major suppliers at our events.

WE’RE TECH FOCUSED

We’re tech geeks at heart, so we’re proud that many new innovations have been launched with us at Indoor Ag-Con, such as Freight Farms’ FarmHand app. We’re expecting this run to continue at our Las Vegas event this year.

ONSITE CONTAINER FARM TOURS

Farm tours are a common feature of agriculture shows, but we like to do things a little differently at Indoor Ag-Con so we’re bringing the farm tours to you. Leading container farm companies Indoor Farms of America and Modular Farms will have their farms onsite, and their staff will be offering tours and taking questions from 8.30am to 5.30pm each day.

WE’RE CROP AGNOSTIC

At Indoor Ag-Con, we believe that the universe works in mysterious ways and that the answer to that growing or business problem is as likely to come from a gal you meet at a drinks party as it is from someone in your own lane. That’s why our events are crop-agnostic; we cover all kinds of crops grown indoors, from fruit & vegetables to legal cannabis to alternate proteins.

40+ SPEAKER FACULTY

Our speaking faculty includes gurus from all aspects of the commercial indoor growing world; control and grow systems, big data and machine learning, plant biology, aquaponics, in-home systems, LED lights, chefs, and many more…

50+ EXHIBITORS

Our exhibition hall already includes 50+ booths from companies ranging from drone startups to leading big data control companies.  Here’s our exhibition hall layout.  Want to join us as an exhibitor?  Thanks to our location at Las Vegas Convention Center, we’re able to accommodate last minute booth orders up until May 2.  Registration is available here.
