Experience the future of urban green living

Split over a multiple day period to facilitate the interests of both businesses and consumers, the Greenhouse Festival programme covers an eclectic mix of workshops, talks, presentations and product pitches, as well as functioning as a bustling marketplace. The Incubation Programme prepares Incubation Programme teams to present their product during the Demo-Day, to an audience of industry professionals, potential investors and thousands of consumers.
