The International Strawberry Symposium 2020 will take place in Rimini on 2nd-6th May 2020. It is organized by Università Politecnica delle Marche and Consiglio per la ricerca e l'economia agraria (CREA - Council for agricultural research and economy) in cooperation with the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS). Representatives are Gianluca Baruzzi from Crea and Bruno Mezzetti from Università delle Marche.
"The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 31st January 2020. We have already received over 300 submissions for the 4 topics. It is a great success and we know others are still coming in."
On May 6th, during Macfrut, the event will move from the Palacongressi to the fair grounds. There will be other technical reports and mini-symposiums. The topic on certifications is much awaited.
"The deadline for discounted submissions is March 2nd. A lot of people have already confirmed from abroad and we are still waiting for others to enrol from Italy, Europe and other continents over the next few weeks. What is more, we must not forget the entire part concerning the tour along the entire peninsula that will take place in the days immediately before and after the event."
