The transforming power of Vertical Farming

We are proud to announce The Association for Vertical Farming summit will take place in Hong Kong on September 7, 2018, during the Asia Fruit Logistica. AVF kindly invite all of you to take part in this event and discuss the transforming power of Vertical Farming with an interactive approach.

We will connect with producers and consumers throughout the exhibition and clearly show the potential of Vertical Farming to others in the food production business, logistics, and technology.

During this event, we will define and identify how politics, industry cooperation, technology, science, society, and finance can contribute to the future development of Vertical Farming.

Here is what you should expect as an attendee of the Summit:

  • Connect with players in the Asia region (Japan, China SEA)
  • Innovative ideas and solutions
