An Ideal Place for Business !

The ISF World Seed Congress 2018 will provide many opportunities to conduct business in small or large group settings.

From the Trading Floor with reserved and unreserved tables to the Exhibition and Meeting Rooms Delegates will find the exceptional meeting facilities very convenient.

During the annual ISF World Seed Congress, ISF organizes technical meetings of all the different ISF Sections and Committees.

These meetings are open to all ISF members, and provide the participants with an update of what has been done over the past year.

These meetings also serve to set the positions that ISF will be taking in their outreach efforts to external stakeholders. In case you wish to make your voice heard, these would be the meetings to go to.
