Unlock the Potential of Indoor Farming in Cities of the Future

On 22-23 May, the AVF will host an indoor farming conference at Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities.

The URBAN FUTURE global conference ( is the world's only conference dedicated exclusively to CityChangers – decision makers who actively, passionately and with innovation make cities more sustainable.

The AVF’s conference-within-a-conference ( will touch on all of Urban Future’s main thematic areas (Urban Mobility, Built Environment; Leadership; Green Business & Innovation) but will be the only forum to specifically focus on the innovative food chain.

Thus, we cordially invite you to the AVF conference entitled:
“Unlocking the Potential of Indoor Farming in Cities of the Future.”

Over two half-day sessions, we will hear keynote speeches, witness roundtable discussions on the industry's and society’s most pressing topics, and participate in guided workshops to create realistic strategies for the industry’s future. We will connect cities and industry to create solutions for food in the city.

This is an unparalleled opportunity to network with entrepreneurs, companies, technologists, growers, city planners, research institutions, governmental bodies and enthusiasts from all over the globe. The outcome? Realistic strategies for implementing resilient food production systems in cities across the globe.
