You Will Get Inspired at Growing Innovations

The days are growing shorter, and so too is the time left to make plans to attend Growing Innovations, Nov. 7-8 in Las Vegas, NV. We at Meister Media Worldwide are confident it’ll be the only event of its kind you’ll attend this offseason.

How so, you say? Isn’t every grower show basically the same?

Not this one. Across all of Meister Media’s brands we took inventory of the most stubborn issues facing specialty crop growers and their trusted advisers — water, labor, staffing, logistics, weather, technology adoption, and data management especially — and crafted a two-day event highlighting the best products, services, techniques, and approaches out there that can help us light a candle rather than curse the darkness.


Plus, we’ve partnered with an experienced events company, NXT Media Group, to create an exhibit hall that will be abuzz with displays and interactive demonstrations from a wide range of solutions providers along with a learning area called GRO Talks — hands-on, real-world stories about successful on-farm adoption of new innovations.

Plenary sessions similarly are built around impactful presentations by people who are on the front lines of making innovation happen.
