GreenTech 2019 to Focus on Artificial Intelligence and Automation in the Greenhouse
GreenTech, a global meeting place for those interested in horticulture technology, takes place June 11-13 at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre in The Netherlands. The theme of this year’s event is “Autonomous Technology — A Formula to Accelerate the Business of Professional Horticulture Beyond the Green Thumb.” The trade show is a must-visit for all horticulture and indoor growing professionals worldwide, and presents the latest innovations in the rapidly evolving industry.
Extensive Knowledge Program
Visitors to GreenTech will have the opportunity to meet at least 470 exhibitors. Among these exhibitors are major greenhouse builders, including Dutch market leaders and innovators, and some of the biggest seed companies. There will also be four pavilions dedicated to Vertical/ Indoor Growing, Precision Horticulture, Medicinal Cannabis, and Organic.
This year, GreenTech will also have three theatres: “Food & Flowers in Greenhouses,” “Climate, Water, and Energy,” and “Trends and Innovations,” where more than 80 educational sessions will be presented.
“There is a big demand for successful horticultural entrepreneurs, but this line of business is unfortunately still very scarce,” says Mariska Dreschler, Director Horticulture of RAI Amsterdam. “Horticulture is dependent on location, infrastructure, specialist skills, and the availability of labor. Developments in autonomous technology create opportunities to reduce dependencies in horticulture and increase flexibility in the industry.”
Industry leaders at GreenTech will get insights into current and future developments in autonomous green technology and a status update on progress towards the greenhouse of the future. These leaders will have the opportunity to be inspired by a shipping industry that faces challenges that are similar to their own, but are different from their visions and perspectives.
The GreenTech Innovation Awards
GreenTech has asked the industry to share their latest innovations. Every entry will then be assessed by an expert jury. The winners in four categories (Innovation, Sustainability, Impact, and Concept) will be announced during the official opening of GreenTech on June 11.
