5TH ANNUAL INDOOR AG-CON

NETWORKING GALORE
Our participants join us from over a dozen countries and hail from farming, 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, and we expect more of the same this year.

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.

OUR NEWEST WHITE PAPER

We’ll be releasing the latest edition of our white paper series at the event; participants receive an exclusive hard copy. Its predecessors have been downloaded nearly 6,000 times.

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

Join industry leaders in exhibiting at Indoor Ag-Con. Our premium growth booths are sold out, but we have several other categories still available and look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!
