With hundreds of millions in currency being invested in vertical farms across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Japan and beyond, the first Vertical Farming World Congress is being held online from 22 to 24 September. It is bringing together the sector’s top minds and businesses including vertical farming operators, investors, suppliers and experts to debate and help advance the sector’s future.

Richard Hall, chairman of Zenith Global, food and drink consultants organizing the event, says the first Vertical Farming World Congress will have the theme ‘Shaping Food’s Future’ and will enable guests to hear from leading global players and network with key figures from across the industry. He says it is a unique opportunity for interested investors, agriculturalists, food producers, suppliers, academics and governments.

“There will be virtual farm tours, round tables on key issues and socials as well as one-to-one networking. Participants will be able to 'visit' some vertical farms from the comfort of their own home. The most authoritative speakers in the sector have been assembled and there will be access afterwards to review presentations and continue making new connections,” says the chairman.
