Overview

Indoor Ag-Con will be hosting its sixth annual event at Las Vegas Convention Center on May 2-3, 2018. The two-day event will once more combine an exhibition hall with conference proceedings, and will highlight the biggest trends and newest technologies of the global indoor agriculture industry. We are expecting the event to grow again this year, with more than 70 exhibitors forecast. For the first time, we will have two conference stages, meaning more educational content on topics from LED lighting and plant biology to indoor agriculture policy. The event will be crop-agnostic, covering produce, legal cannabis, insects, algae and other non-food crops. Participants will be able to network during extended networking breaks, during lunchtime discussions led by subject matter experts, at a drinks party on the first evening and through the dedicated event app.
