4th Global Vertical Farming Show - GVF 2023 DUBAI

After the successful conclusion of all three editions in the past, the show which has Integrated India's pioneers of modern farming to collaborate and grow - is coming back with its successor to a city of Modern Farming - Dubai.

Global Vertical Farming Show - now in its 4th edition, is a ground-breaking event taking place again in Dubai. After the immense success of its previous editions — the event has set an appreciating standard & benchmark of its own. GVF 2023 - Dubai continues to be a trailblazing event bringing together the complete vertical farming ecosystem to explore the market, introduce brands, forge new connections and create long-term strategic partnerships during two power-packed business networking days.

Vertical Farming is becoming critically important in increasing food production, maintaining high-quality crops and contributing to sustainable urban farming, hence playing an important role in increasing food security worldwide.

Furthermore, there is a growing interest in vertical farming around the world, with massive facilities already in operation in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States, and new projects being announced on a regular basis. The Middle East is unquestionably leading the way in this space, with the world's largest Vertical Farm, ECO 1 by Bustanica (a joint venture between Crop One Holdings and Emirates Flight Catering), which opened this year.


Why Middle East ?

Over 35,000 farms are reported to exist in the region, which use cutting-edge technology and purpose-built habitats such as greenhouses and vertical farms. It contributes to the Gulf states' 2018 goal to secure food by diversifying food sources, among other things.

According to information on the UAE official website, the UAE intends to be "the world's best in the Global Food Security Index by 2051 and among the top 10 countries by 2021."

The Middle Eastern government recognises the importance of AgTech in achieving food security goals and official backing paves the way. It has always been open to foreign investment to develop the vertical farming sector in the next few years—which opens up tremendous economic prospects for new or established firms.

Since the Middle East alone provides vertical farming resources that can help develop a centre of networking opportunities for multinational firms to locate the right channel partner and support stakeholders in reaching the right audience, it can also assist foreign companies to explore the sector as a whole—for business opportunities.

Dubai as a Destination

For Dubai, the food industry is one of the priority sectors of the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030. The region is continuously seeking to integrate the most recent technology into the contemporary agricultural approach. In 2019, Dubai's GDP was boosted by agricultural activities by 498 million AED. Dubai, which was ranked eighth for agricultural productivity in the 2018 IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook, has encouraged investment in advanced farming through innovations like vertical farming in order to achieve self-sustainability and food security. With the opening of ECO 1 - the World's Largest Vertical Farm this year, it became abundantly clear that the region is booming with innovations in vertical farming.

Through the 4th Global Vertical Farming Show GVF2023, we bring the entire vertical farming value chain under one roof—-building an excellent hub of commercial networking where international brands get a space, and immense commercial opportunity to strike a deal and find the right channel partner.
