Building on the resounding success of the ICCEA 2015, the 348 attendees and 27 Exhibitors completely surpassed the goals set up by the organizing committee.

We are expecting over 600 Attendees and 60 Exhibitors at ICCEA 2017.

At the ICCEA 2015, we witnessed first-hand the overwhelming, positive remarks from attendees and exhibitors.

Most assuredly, the ICCEA 2017 will surpass all expectations!


Testimonials from ICCEA 2015

“Last year I participated in the ICCEA in Panama. At the venue I was astounded by the amount of knowledgeable and interesting people attending as well as presenting… The breaks also proved to be very valuable in discussing the presentations and business opportunities as well as the small exposition added extra value. A “must-go” next year, that is for sure.”

— Jan Westra, Strategic Business Developer, Priva

“For Heliospectra, the 2015 ICCEA event was really important from both the perspective of Heliospectra having the opportunity to share our knowledge with the audience and also from a networking point of view. We managed to connect with people and companies who later became key customers for us.”

— Ruben Gonzalez, Online Sales & Marketing Associate, Heliospectra

“The ICCEA 2015 featured a wide range of leading academics with expertise in controlled environment agriculture as well as growers and industry leaders with practical experience growing crops indoors. I found the presentations and subsequent discussions to be informative and stimulating and hope to participate in the 2017 meeting.”

—Dr. Erik Runkle, Professor/Floriculture Extension Specialist, Michigan State University

“It was a special privilege to participate in the 2015 ICCEA. The information presented during the 3 day event was cutting edge and diverse. An incredible lineup of international speakers covered topics ranging from robotics to financing new CEA businesses. Producers provided “how-to” information directly applicable to a variety of leafy crops. Researchers shared their latest discoveries and provided a glimpse into the future. The quality of the program was matched by the outstanding hospitality of our Panamanian hosts. Can’t wait for May, 2017!”  

— Dr. Don Wilkerson, Senior Horticulturist, iBio CMO

“ICCEA 2015 was one of the best values for time and money I have experienced in my 40+ years in global horticulture. For an inaugural event that is almost unheard of. The venue, speakers, and program content were well above average which probably explains why there was such a diverse and relevant attendance making networking opportunities outstanding. I’m anxiously looking forward to ICCEA 2017!”

— Ron Cramer, Project Development Manager  |  Xiant Technologies
