8th ITGS Newsletter - Big Interest after the First Deadlines!

We are pleased to announce that about 90 scientific/technical communications have been submitted (oral and poster presentations) from 14 Countries. The preferred topics concern, first of all, the innovative cultural techniques, followed by genetic resources, post-harvest, plant biology, plant protection, economics and market. The International Scientific Committee will be busy now in the abstract evaluation and selection to define the scientific sessions.
Contacts for registration of attendees are already close to one hundred. By now, more than 90% of participants in regular payments have selected the full package option (Apulia and Sicily).

As concerns the technical activities, as previously announced, a round table discussion on market, fruit quality and commercial/logistic aspects of table grape industry has been scheduled on October 5th.
The tours to leader farms for table grape production, packaging, plastic cover manufacturing, postharvest and commercialization (Apulia, October 4th) and for special growing techniques (Sicily, October and 7th) have been defined. Soon the details will be communicated.

The second registration deadline is now approaching!

We encourage to visit the Symposium web site and to contact the secretarial service.

Harry up and join us at the 8th International Table Grape Symposium in Italy!
