The 2nd Urban Agri Africa 2018, the leading event for the Urban and Indoor Farming industry, will be hosted in Johannesburg, South Africa on September 25 and 26, at the Sunnyside Park Hotel.

This two-day Summit will bring together agriculture stakeholders – including policy makers, trade and investment promotion agencies, farmers (both smallholders and commercial farmers), credit and agri-financiers, agri start-ups, and system integrators – under one roof to learn, share and implement the latest developments and opportunities presented by vertical farming, urban greenhouses and controlled environment agriculture.

Africa has unique opportunities for vertical farms. Feeding Africa’s rapidly growing urban population will continue to be a daunting challenge, but vertical farming – and its variations – is one of the most innovative approaches that can be tapped into as part of an effort to grow fresh, healthy, nutritious and pesticide-free food for consumers.

The latest joint ventures and partnerships will be highlighted, case studies shared and strategies robustly debated. New trends, opportunities and technologies will be showcased, once again providing the perfect platform for extraordinary networking opportunities for all Summit participants.
