LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, USA, April 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Farm tours are a popular feature of agriculture trade shows, but Indoor Ag-Con – the indoor agriculture industry’s premier conference – likes to do things a little differently. It will instead be featuring two container farm tours at its next event, at the Las Vegas Convention Center on May 3-4, 2017.

The tours will be operated by two leading container farming equipment suppliers, Indoor Farms of America and Modular Farms. Their staff will be on hand from 8.30am to 5.30pm on each of May 3 and May 4 to walk participants through the farms and answer questions about their equipment. Their farming approaches are quite different from one another, and will allow participants to identify the best fit for their vertical farming needs. “We’re excited to have our participants experience these farms on site” commented Nicola Kerslake, founder of Newbean Capital, the event’s host.

Indoor Farms of America is based in Las Vegas, NV, and utilizes vertical aeroponic technologies in its container farm products, which range from the truck-mounted farm that it will be showcasing at Indoor Ag-Con to a farm specially adapted to meet the needs of disabled veterans. The farms offer 40 plants/ft2 of grow area, are designed to be used in both controlled environment and greenhouse settings and use just 3% of the water of a traditional farm. It recommends that customers grow leafy greens, herbs, chili & sweet peppers, peas, strawberries, cherry tomatoes and beans in its systems, and is continually adding more crops to the list. The Company’s website is at www.indoorfarmsamerica.com.

Canadian Modular Farms has developed a series of modular units, such as, ones for refrigerated storage and for growing microgreens, that work with its primary unit, a specially designed 40’x10’x10’ composite steel box. The eight unit options can be combined to create the optimal farm for each customer. Its units are based on hydroponic growing and include ZipGrow towers, with over 300 towers packed into its production-only macro farm unit. The Company’s website is at www.modularfarms.co.

The farms will be displayed at Indoor Ag-Con, a two-day event held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and tailored toward corporate executives from the technology, investment, vertical farming, greenhouse growing, and food and beverage industries, along with hydroponic, aquaponic and aeroponic startups and urban farmers. The event is unique in being crop-agnostic, covering crops from leafy greens and mushrooms to alternate proteins and legal cannabis.

The farms will join industry majors such as Argus Controls, Autogrow, BrightFarms, Certhon, Dosatron, DRAMM, Hort Americas, Philips Lighting, Priva, and Transcend Lighting in a 50+ booth exhibition hall. The event includes two full days of speakers, including executives from CropKing, Driscoll’s, Fresh Box Farms, Grobo, Helical Holdings, Intravision, Kalyx Development, MedMen, Plenty, Shenandoah Farms and Village Farms among a 40+ strong speaking faculty.

Indoor Ag-Con has also hosted events in Singapore, SG and New York, NY in the past year, and is currently planning its first event in Dubai. Since it was founded in 2013, Indoor Ag-Con has captured an international audience and attracted some of the top names in the business. Events have welcomed nearly 2,000 participants from more than 20 countries.

Newbean Capital, the host of the conference, is a registered investment advisor; some of its clients or potential clients may participate in the conference. The Company is ably assisted in the event’s production by Rachelle Razon, Sarah Smith and Michael Nelson of Origin Event Planning, and by Michele Premone of Brede Allied.
