GROW Executive Summit Engages Top-Level Leaders Across the Industry

The GROW Executive Summit gathers the Who’s Who in forward-thinking executives across the controlled-environment sector and delivers valuable curated content for senior-level managers.

Engaging sessions address economic and market trends, labor, supply chain, and profitability for modern greenhouses.

Who’s Invited?

Executives in the controlled-environment ornamental, vegetable, and cannabis greenhouse businesses.

You’ll engage with senior-level managers and thought leaders who are invested in tackling what matters most to your operation.

“The ability to be able to talk openly about what’s happening at every level of the industry makes this conference “must see” for future years.”

-2021 Attendee


For more than a decade, the Greenhouse Grower ℠ GROW Initiative has served as the industry’s leading forum for greenhouse grower leaders. GROW is a platform for idea exchange, relationship building, real talk about business challenges, and focused, strategic discussions about what’s coming down the pike.

The GROW Executive Summit takes this concept to the next level as the only venue in North America that brings together leaders across the entire controlled-environment specialty crop spectrum.

These thought leaders will gather for two days of education, discussion, and high-impact networking to help tackle the most critical issues facing today’s controlled-environment greenhouse operations.
