Cultivation systems integration company, urban-gro, Inc. announced that the company’s Vice President of Facility Integration is speaking at the International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC) on August 26-27, 2021 in Berlin, Germany. With experience in hundreds of Controlled Environment Agriculture (“CEA”) facilities spanning millions of square feet across the globe, urban-gro works to engineer, design, and integrate complex environmental equipment systems into high-performance facilities.
Lucas Targos, Vice President of Facility Integration, will speak on “Cannabis Technology Revolutionizing an Emerging Industry” on August 27th at 2:20 pm CET.
“With the expansion of the medical cannabis market in Europe, facility owners, investors and regulators are very interested in the efficient, compliant production of safe medicinal cannabis products,” notes Mr. Targos. “Working in Europe is very similar to the United States in that each country is developing a regulatory framework consistent with their cultural norms and government policy goals. We integrate clients very early into the planning and design process to deliver facilities that are efficient and profitable. Technology plays a key role in each project’s development and operations.”
In his role as Vice President of Facility Integration at urban-gro, Mr. Targos uses his 15 years of crop and cultivation management experience to bridge the gap between commercial horticulture and the cannabis industry. He has worked with hundreds of cultivators across the globe to develop innovative automation designs and practices that strive for facility efficiency and reduced production costs. His diverse background in cannabis and horticulture makes him an asset to the highly regulated cultivation solutions industry. His experience has provided the framework to develop successful solutions for cultivation challenges, as well as the ability to integrate more established and regulated industries’ policies into the ever-changing cannabis landscape. Mr. Tagos has a degree in Environmental Studies with a focus on sustainable agriculture from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.
urban-gro is also an exhibitor at the event, with sales and technical representatives available for meetings at booth 46/47.
