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:
Robert Chen, Chairman, President and CEO of AEssense
Saskia Sassen, Professor of Sociology at Columbia University
Eight topic groups, including: industry & technology, science, education, investment & finance, Smart Food Future Cities, Policies & Legislation
Design thinking sessions to get you engaged with like-minded individuals
As a participant, you are invited to choose one design thinking session in which you will work together with other like-minded individuals to create a five-year plan for your particular topic. After the workshops, the groups’ findings will be shared and discussed, and an overarching 5-year roadmap for the implementation of Vertical Farming/Plant Factories will be developed.
The event will take place at a new venue:
21/F California Tower
