  • “Indoor AgTech was a great opportunity to network with some of the largest growers in the industry and see some of the latest technologies that are up and coming. Often times people are too busy to answer emails and schedule calls so it was nice to meet so many people face to face to develop relationships and see if there is any room for collaboration.”

24 - 25 June 2024    Chicago

The Indoor AgTech Innovation Summit is coming to Chicago on June 24-25 in 2024.

The summit brings together the world’s leading growers, retailers, tech providers, seed companies and investors to meet, expand networks and produce fruitful partnerships.

After a pivotal year for the CEA sector, the summit will explore what’s needed to ensure the indoor farming industry can continue innovating and growing into a crucial part of the global agri-food supply chain.

From multi-acre scale facility design to seed optimization for vertical growing, and from multi-million-dollar funding rounds to the fine margins of running profitable farms, an international speaking faculty will discuss the critical success factors for CEA in today’s economic environment.

Delegates can take advantage of the dedicated meeting platform to meet future investors and business partners in the 1-1 networking room or sit down with a thought-leader at a roundtable break-out to dig deeper into the technologies and business models that are shaping the industry in 2024 and beyond.

With an exhibition showcasing tech providers’ latest innovations, including climate controls, lighting, vertical farming towers and automation tech, forward thinking growers sharing advances in their growing techniques and expanding CEA to new crops, as well as featuring a menu with fantastic fresh produce from indoor farms. This is a summit focused on the latest learnings from the sector, high-profile networking and deal-making.
