WHAT THE HACK IS HEROFESTIVAL?
This edition will be about the future of work in the Food & Flower industry and will be launched as a hybrid event (limited access offline and widely online). We will be doing more than just talk, such as networking, deep diving and co-creating in different sessions focussing on the theme:
HACKING WORK IN THE FOOD & FLOWER INDUSTRY BY TECH & TALENT
TECHNOLOGY has revolutionized many aspects of e.g. cultivation, harvesting, grading, packaging, trading and transport in the Food & Flower industry. Innovative technologies are being integrated into work processes, but we need multidisciplinary teams with both industry expertise as well as TALENT with new skills in order to make the leap forward. At HeroFestival 2020 we will give the ‘stage’ to innovators and ramp up collaboration within four sessions hosted by Jim Stolze.
