New dates for ISF World Seed Congress

NYON, Switzerland: The International Seed Federation together with the Spanish National Organising Committee (NOC) continue to prepare the way for the ISF World Seed Congress 2021 in Barcelona. Considering recent developments, it has been decided to move the dates of the Congress from 17-19 May to 5-7 July 2021.

“We are cautiously optimistic that this move will give us the much-needed time to see improvements in the situation in Spain and the rest of the world,” said Michael Keller, ISF Secretary General.

“We will prioritise the need of our delegates and partners for a business-centred event in both physical and virtual settings. Today we are working towards a Congress format that will allow our participants to trade on site, Sponsors and Exhibitors to present themselves on site, and delegates to network and participate on site in important discussions on topics concerning the seed industry.”

He added, “The crisis calls on us to be innovative, therefore, additionally, we will introduce novel ways of delivering the congress experience. Aside from the physical event, we will set up a live streaming platform Channel World Seed, on which we will share thematic content from ISF and marketing content from companies.”
