Vertical Farming Summit in Asia

The transforming power of Vertical Farming

The vertical farming industry has been moving from strength to strength in recent years, as fully-realized facilities are opening up across the globe. "Having demonstrated its clear potential as a positive force in the future of food, we now need to capitalize on the moment and establish a clear path forward", the AVF is assured of. Therefore they will launch the first-ever Vertical Farming Summit in Asia this Friday.

Building the roadmap for the future of Vertical Farming
During this event, the program will focus on defining and identifying how politics, industry cooperation, technology, science, society, and finance can contribute to the future development of Vertical Farming. Highlights of the event will include:
