LAS VEGAS — Attendees will hear from CEOs, thought leaders and industry experts from today’s cutting-edge farms and other innovative companies during Indoor Ag-Con, a crop-agnostic trade event for vertical and indoor farming, heading to the Wynn Las Vegas from May 18-20. Among them are keynote speakers David Rosenberg, CEO, Aerofarms; Mike Zelkind, CEO, 80 Acres Farms; and Sonia Lo, CEO, Crop One Holdings.
The 2020 Conference Schedule will feature three core tracks — Business, Science | Technology and Alternative Crops.
“We surveyed our past attendees to find out what they need from a conference and our 2020 format and track topics are in direct response to their feedback,” says Nancy Hallberg, co-owner of Indoor Ag-Con LLC, along with other event industry veterans Brian Sullivan and Kris Sieradzki. “The full program will offer a mix of panel presentations, fireside chats, roundtables and other programs that bring together different perspectives and steer clear of commercial pitches.”
