North American Specialty Agriculture to Gather in Las Vegas for GROWING INNOVATIONS Conference

October 4, 2018 – Willoughby, Ohio – Meister | NXT, the joint venture of Meister Media Worldwide, a leading media company serving specialty agriculture, and NXT Events Media Group, producer of more than 100 award-winning, world-class events, announce GROWING INNOVATIONS, the first ever conference and tradeshow convening leaders across North American specialty agriculture, November 7- 8, 2018. Las Vegas, NV.

GROWING INNOVATIONS ( is a first-of-its-kind two-day conference and exposition bringing together progressive growers and advisors across the specialty farm community to share insights and practical solutions from seed to harvest and beyond which have applications for farms of all types and sizes across crops and geographies.

Succeeding in today’s specialty agriculture industry is as challenging ever. Orchards to citrus groves, cotton farms to vineyards, vegetable operations to greenhouses across the country all face similar challenges. Limitations on land, water and labor, cost/price squeeze, regulatory and environmental pressures, heightened consumer expectations for safety and transparency, and more require specialty crop growers to adopt new ideas and approaches to lead their farms forward in the new era of data-driven agriculture.

GROWING INNOVATIONS, developed in concert with an Advisory Board of leading specialty agriculture farms and advisors along with support from key national and regional organizations and associations, is a must-attend event for specialty crop growers. Combining keynotes, classroom sessions, interactive workshops, roundtables and peer discussion groups, the conference provides focused content in all key farm management areas for growers to capitalize on the exciting new opportunities in this rapidly changing farm environment.

An innovative approach to the tradeshow experience adds further value for growers attending GROWING INNOVATIONS through collaborative hands-on learning opportunities and interactive show features.

Exhibitors at GROWING INNOVATIONS are selected and vetted to address the viability of their products and systems in real-world specialty crop environments — meaning GROWING INNOVATIONS represents real solutions for farms today.

The GRO NEXT pavilion on the show floor, created with an interactive design, will introduce growers to the emerging companies deploying new systems and solutions to advance specialty agriculture. GRO TALKS, co-sponsored by Nufarm, is another unique experience at GROWING INNOVATIONS with presentations over two days by companies and growers who are gaining traction with new approaches to lead their farm forward.

Because Western North America is a region rich in specialty crops, Las Vegas as the host of GROWING INNOVATIONS offers an especially convenient and central hub. Cost-effective, easily accessible and fun to visit, Las Vegas is the perfect gathering place for specialty crop growers from all over.
