From October 7th to 9th, ESA European Seed Association will hold its 2018 Annual and European Seed Trade Meeting in Madrid, Spain, and I hope you will join us again at this key event for the seed industry. Make sure you reserve your place and register via this website as of April 3rd.
Last year in Riga, Latvia, almost 1000 participants joined us from Europe and from all over the world, underlining the importance of the ESA Annual Meeting not only for the European but also for the international seed sector.
In Madrid, we are proud to once again provide you with excellent meeting facilities and a stimulating conference atmosphere in this spectacular, vibrant European city.
From Sunday to Tuesday, large trade and exhibition spaces will provide perfect opportunities for interaction and exposure of all participants and exhibiting companies; we expect a buzzing atmosphere of professional exchange, showcases of new technological developments and the latest in technical equipment, mechanical components, processing technologies and plant breeding software.
In our Section Meetings on Monday and Tuesday, you will get the latest information on crop specific issues as well as presentations on important horizontal subjects that are relevant for seed companies in Europe and worldwide.
And as usual, our Assembly General on Tuesday afternoon will feature high-level keynote speakers who will tackle important policy priorities for the seed sector for the coming months and years.
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us at ESA’s Annual Meeting again this year in the beautiful Spanish city of Madrid; and I am looking forward to welcoming you!
