June 15 2022 – New York and Switzerland – NYC AgTech Week 2022 will take place September 26 to October 1st 2022 across New York City, bringing together a multidisciplinary, international audience for a week of virtual panels, farm tours, and networking events across the 5 boroughs of NYC: showcasing the urban farming ecosystem and providing an equitable, insightful, and valuable look into the state of AgTech today. NYC AgTech Week is notable for being the only AgTech Conference that is produced and organized by the pioneers of the industry themselves.
This year, NYC AgTech Week’s unique hybrid programming of virtual panels and in-person farm tours will culminate on September 30th with the launch of the first-annual Generation Fest, presented by non-profit organization Thought For Food (TFF) and The NYC Agriculture Collective.

Generation Fest will unite some of the world’s most visionary and cutting-edge innovators from the interconnected realms of entrepreneurship, science, technology, design, and creativity for an experiential and immersive program focused on co-creating a more inclusive and abundant food future for all.
