Welcome to the Horticultural Lighting + Tech newsletter for Sept. 12, 2022. As more details about Resilient Harvests Conference sessions are revealed, we have the insider insights for you, including an update on keynote addition Shanita Penny, who will speak on Day 2 of the conference.

The difference in conference focus from the past Horticultural and HortiCann conferences is clear. A more tactical and diverse approach to policies, programs, and best practices takes over where our niche concentration on the science behind lighting for plants last left off. That doesn't mean we are leaving the lighting behind. According to conference management, the key to "resilient harvests" is a 360-degree view of the engineered environment and systems, code and policies, and workforce development practices that will expand controlled environment agriculture into economies all across the U.S. and hopefully the entire globe.

Read up on the event roadmap, keynote speakers, and program development in this issue, and register by Sept. 16 to take advantage of the early-bird discount.

And don't forget, we have new webcasts on the calendar over the next few weeks. Visit the webcast landing page to see what's coming!
