US (GA): AgLanta Conference returns for second edition

The City of Atlanta Office of Resilience and Agritecture announce that the AgLanta Conference is officially returning for a second year. On March 27 & 28, 2018, AgLanta 2018 will build upon the inaugural year.

At last year’s AgLanta Conference, over 270 attendees joined together for intimate and invaluable discussions. Highlights from the conference included a widely viewed panel on the three largest shuttered vertical farms in North America, as well as a standing ovation for the keynote speech by Stephen Ritz.

AgLanta 2018 will build on the brand’s prior success with a new twist on the conference theme: Smart Ag for Smart Cities. AgLanta 2018 attendees can expect the programming to focus on agriculture’s role in the smart city of the future under 7 key topics.
