“We are very pleased to go back to Germany again for this year’s edition of the Prognosfruit and to visit the interesting city of Hamburg. We are looking forward to the cooperation with AMI, BOG and BVEO. Given the outstanding location and attractive programme, we expect a record participation this year.”
Philippe Binard – WAPA
“Prognosfruit is a well established event on the agenda of the European apple and pear production. For this 40th jubilee edition, we are very pleased that the conference returns to Germany once again. The registration is now open on the Prognosfruit website!”
Dr. Christian Weseloh – BVEO
“We are delighted to host the world congress in apples and pears, Prognosfruit, in Germany this year. In Hamburg – the gateway to the world – we provide not only a professional programme for all delegates, but also an interesting technical visit to the area of the Niederelbe, just outside the city Hamburg. This area has become known as the ‘Altes Land’ (the old country), which is the largest closed fruit growing area in Germany.”
PROGNOSFRUIT is a world’s leading annual event for the fruit industry. At this conference, the World Apple and Pear Association (WAPA) announces the apple and pear production forecast and fruit market trends in the EU and outside are discussed. The conference brings together producers, processors and traders from various European countries and beyond.
