Educating international and local growers in a dynamically developing greenhouse producer country:

Congress on Controlled Environment Agriculture to début in Panama

For the first time, a Congress on Controlled Environment Agriculture will be held in Panama next year. The main goal of the congress is to educate future and existing entrepreneurs working or interested in the controlled environment industry. Furthermore, the congress aims to introduce the opportunities in the dynamically developing Panamanian horticulture industry and give a spark for growers, suppliers and investors.
Chris Higgins from Hort Americas is one of the initiators of the coming congress. “Panama is a country which is focused on developing its horticulture and agriculture industries in addition to already being a major global logistics connector and a beautiful tourist destination” he said. ”Hence, it is a perfect place for such a conference, as the suppliers can really get in contact with growers that are eager to learn, invest and produce. International attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy the Panamanian culture and learn about the countries rich history.”

Being close to big markets such as the United States, the Panamanian government is investing in local food production and the country is adapting an increasing amount of greenhouse technology. Hence the initiators of the new congress believe the country will be a successful location for such an event.

Higgins told us that several internationally known speakers have been invited to present and share their knowledge about controlled environment agriculture, from greenhouse growing to vertical and indoor farming. The conference will become great value for money from many points of view, and exhibitors space is already on sale.
We will keep you posted with updates on this new event as soon as we have more information available.
Dates: May 20th – 22nd 2015
Panama City, Panama
