First speakers confirmed for the Indoor AgTech 2022

It's happening again, the Indoor AgTech Innovation Summit 2022, which will take place in New York City on June 23 and 24. But now, we get to meet in person again. At the event growers, retailers, investors, seed companies and technology providers will meet to network and cultivate new commercial partnerships. 

Through pre-arranged 1:1 meetings, networking events, roundtable discussions and those all-important corridor-connections, this is a summit where you can catch up with industry colleagues and forge the partnerships that will shape your business in 2022.

All sessions will be livestreamed, opening up the summit to a bigger global network than ever before. Whether joining us live or online, we hope to see you there!
