* Work on your future business and growing techniques.
* Be inspired by international guests, other growers, researchers and suppliers like you, who are all devoted to commercial hydroponics and greenhouses.

On offer is a pop-up shopping centre, technical how-to-grow information and social activities for like-minded growers interested in the future of intensive food production.

  • Hi-tech how-to-grow
  • Low-tech how-to-grow
  • How-to capitalise on new trends in consumer shopping such as Uber Eats and Hello Fresh

Hydroponic Greenhouse Farm Tours

Touring several different commercial farms with fellow delegates is one of the best networking and learning opportunities of the conference.

On Wednesday, July 10th 2019 we will offer a choice of two bus tours either going north (and returning via Brisbane airport) or in a westerly direction from the Gold Coast.

Among others, we will visit the brand new Nora Valley snacking tomato greenhouse on the Sunshine Coast and the nearby Vertical Farm System operation.

We promise a range of crops and levels of technology where you can meet the grower managers and hear their story. The questions and answers amongst the group are always enlightening.
