The Trellis team kicked off the trade show season by attending the first annual Growing Innovations at the Las Vegas Convention Center!
About the show
This conference did a great job of capturing the speciality crop market and exploring all the technology options available to them. Attendees included big companies like John Deere and Wilbur-Ellis, as well as growers big and small. As a speciality crop show, we saw many fruit, vegetable and greenhouse growers. Similar to other conferences, all attendees had the opportunity to listen to Keynote speakers talk about all different aspects of agriculture from labor to new technology implemented on their farm.
Something that really drew Trellis to attend Growing Innovations was a new offering they call, Gro Talks. This was a space where ~20 exhibitors were accepted to give a 20-minute talk about their technology’s benefits to the agriculture industry and examples of farms using it around the globe. After their presentation, members of the audiences had the chance to ask questions. Trellis was lucky enough to be selected for a Gro Talk! Our co-founders Liz Buchen and Adam Snow did an amazing job outlining the value of using soil moisture sensors!
