Leading the Leafy Green Revolution

Worldwide the hydroponic leafy green sector is rapidly developing and the potential is enormous. Cultivators decided it was time to come together as an industry, connect, discuss, and learn from each other to improve and grow together.

Therefore the Leafy Hydroponics Summit’s goals are non-commercial communication, knowledge exchange, and networking.

The presentations will be focused on innovations, research, and knowledge, and not commercial pitch decks. The rest of the time will allow the attendees to expand their network and contacts within this specific sector.
