The World's Leading Horticulture Technology Fair Just Got Even Brighter With Valoya

Every two years, over 10,000 horticulture professionals gather in Amsterdam for GreenTech. This is without a doubt the most exciting event for all things horticulture + technology. It's all happening June 11-14 and you do not want to miss it!

Another really cool part of GreenTech is that registration is FREE! So, be sure to make your plans to Amsterdam ASAP.

Agritecture will be there exploring the booths, having meetings with consulting leads, and of course, sharing the happenings with our global following. 

We are particularly excited this year about attending Valoya's FREE special LED conference on June 13th. It's going to feature heavy hitters like Stefanie Linzer, Biologist at Valoya and Richard Ballard, Co-Founder at Growing Underground (the amazing vertical farm in a bomb shelter in London). 

In addition, local vertical farming startup GROWx will be speaking and also Lars Aikala, CEO at Valoya. Perhaps most exciting of all, there will be a special address on lighting for Cannabis by Dr.Gianpaolo Grassi comparing LEDs with HPS. This will be valuable research results for growers of all kinds considering LED lighting options.
