More than 135 growers and industry representatives turned out to attend the recent Leamington Grower Summit, in Leamington, Ont., hosted by horticulture leaders Grodan, Growtec, Philips LED Lighting, Priva, and Svensson.
During the half-day event on March 9, sponsor company representatives shared information on their latest research, products, technology, and how each company is supporting growers in the never-ending pursuit of operational efficiency. The event closed with representatives from HydroOne and Enbridge speaking about their programs that are available to growers in the region.
“Having hosted a similar event several years ago, we were extremely happy to once again offer this in-person summit, and happy to have the opportunity to share our expertise with growers in the Leamington area,” said Henry Vangameren, Priva North America marketing manager. “We believe that by working together, the ACT companies can help growers meet the growing demand for fresh, locally grown produce in the most efficient way, and stay ahead of the curve.”
Attendees gave the grower summit high praise sharing comments that included, “Very good program, good speakers. Maybe 30 minutes more to go deeper”, “excellent program, very informative”, and “the meeting was extremely beneficial to me, I could say I learned more than expected.”
Grodan, Growtec, Philips LED Lighting, Priva, and Svensson have come together as the ACT group; the acronym meaning Advancing Cultivation Technology. The group is focused on bringing together growers, suppliers, and knowledge leaders to provide education on the latest cutting-edge horticulture technologies and best practices, as well as provide networking opportunities. The group has previously hosted several events and webinars including a March 2019 grower day in Leamington, the MJBizCon ACT Summit in Las Vegas in 2019, as well as happy hours at MJBizCon in 2021 and 2022.
