On November 4-6, 2016, Sokolniki ECC hosted the first exhibition on high tech cropping and cooking - Smart Food & Geek Garden. Experts discussed topical issues of the food industry and agriculture during the industry conference, while attendees took part in master classes and enjoyed a spectacular molecular show.
Useful reports for business owners
The event started with a business day that included B2B conference Smart Food & Digital Farm. Experts with years of experience made presentations on high technologies in food, and restaurant industries, as well as in agriculture:
Skolkovo representative Nadezhda Dolmatova told the audience about innovations in the agriculture.
Alexey Trubnikov and Evgeniy Bagryantsev reviewed interesting cases of precision farming.
Skype conversation with a speaker from South Africa Andrei Rozanov diversified the conference: expert told about precision agriculture in South African region.
Dmitri Evstigneev revealed the advantages of robotic waiters and demonstrated their capabilities.
Attendees learned about the food industry technologies of the future from Michael Weisman and Victoria Tibo. They discussed mobile applications, 3D food printers and methods of food quality diagnostics.
The conference was concluded by a lively report of Igor Troyanskiy, dedicated to the challenges of livestock breeding and ways of addressing the issues with the help of high tech wireless devices.

About the speech: the audience showed interest, however not so many questions were asked. We were pleased with the conference facilitator as she was asking questions when the audience was silent.
I would like to note that the combination of Food and Robots exhibitions was not a good idea. We had no idea where we had to go and where the organizers were. First, my colleague Daria entered a completely different room supposing that the conference will be held there (she was told so at the reception). A lot of time was lost this way.
The overall impression is positive.

I will be glad to attend the event next year.
Feedback: not bad for the first-time event, but I hope to see more exhibitors and interesting projects next year. In general, it is preferable to schedule a business program for a weekday, as nobody feels like spending a day-off working. This year, particularly inconvenient date was chosen (November 4), because if I have 3 or 4 days-off I try to travel somewhere. Just by force of circumstances I did not go anywhere, therefore, I was able to attend the event.
As for the pitch session, I liked it more than at RoboticsEXPO, classic version + more interesting projects. Keep it up!
