ESA Annual Meeting 2016 - Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria - Rome - Sunday 9  › Tuesday 11 October 2016

Dear colleagues,

From October 9th to 11th, ESA European Seed Association will hold its 2016 Annual and European Seed Trade Meeting in Rome, Italy.

I hope you will join us at this key seed event and kindly invite you to register via this website as of April 1st.

Last year’s Annual Meeting in Vienna again set a new record of attendance. More than 920 participants joined us - from Europe and from all over the world. This once more confirmed the importance of the ESA event for the European and international seed sector. With Rome, the ‘eternal city’, as this year’s location, we are confident to provide you with excellent facilities and a stimulating conference in a spectacular setting.

Continuing the successful and appreciated new set-up of our Vienna meeting, we will organise again 3 full days of trade meetings for you, starting on Sunday morning.

The large trade and exhibition facilities will provide ample space for interaction and exposure of participants and companies, and will surely see a buzzing atmosphere for professional exchange and possibilities to showcase latest developments in technical equipment, mechanical components, processing technologies and plant breeding software.

During the meetings of our Sections, you can get the latest updates and detailed information on the many crop specific issues important for seed companies in Europe and worldwide; and our General Assembly will feature high-level keynote speakers to address some of the most important policy priorities for the seed sector for the years to come.

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join ESA’s Annual Meeting again in Italy this October - do not miss out on this unique opportunity!

I am looking forward to welcoming you in Rome!

Garlich von Essen
Secretary General
