The annual TSW Fruit & Vegetable Industry Fair took place in Nadarzyn, Warsaw, on 9th & 10th of January 2019. This, the biggest industry event in Central Europe, gathered 386 exhibitors (60 more than in the previous year!), housed 60 industry-related talks, including the 6th strawberry conference, and attracted 14,735 visitors.
For the first time Meiosis Ltd attended the show as visitors rather than exhibitors, which allowed us numerous meetings with our friends. At the same time another important event, ISFC, was taking place in the Netherlands, and some busy people managed to attend both events.
We had a very useful and informative meeting with our licence holders and associate members on the first day of the show, during which we presented details of the new varieties in the Meiosis portfolio.
We would like to thank all those who welcomed us to their stands and shared and discussed their joys and experiences. We truly believe that occasions such as this strengthen our relationships.
We were pleased to learn that new local strawberry breeding programmes of junebearers and everbearers are being introduced.
We are grateful to the organisers for preparing such an important event, and for providing us with a meeting room. We are already looking forward to next year’s jubilee 10th edition of TSW which will take place on 9th & 10th January 2020.
