We’re pleased to be sponsoring the Asiafruit Congress for the second year

Again hosted at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong, the Congress is an unmissable event in the fresh produce industry calendar that takes place on 3 September 2019, just one day before the bumper three day trade show, Asia fruit Logistica.

Asiafruit Congress attracts more than 450 delegates from over 40 different countries with last year’s show attracting over 13,500 trade visitors.

After the success of sponsoring the Congress for the first time last year we couldn’t turn down the chance to do so again in 2019. As Asia’s leading fresh produce conference, it’s always a great opportunity to build new relationships, catch up with old friends or just gain a fresh perspective on our industry.

Mark Tweddle speaking at this year’s Congress

As we exclusively revealed at the end of last month, our CEO Mark will be speaking at this year’s event. As a thought leader in the industry, Mark will be offering his take on Jupiter’s role in commercialising grape varieties and will form part of a panel discussing intellectual property.

Joining Mark between 14:15-15:15, in Workshop1 will be Garth Swinburn, the Vice President of Licensing at Sun World International and Jingold’s CEO, Alessandro Fornari . The session will look at the evolving role of IP varieties, from structuring supply chains to building brand equity.

On attending the conference, Mark says “We’re really pleased to be sponsoring the Asia Fruit Congress again this year and I was delighted to be asked to share my thoughts on IP as part of a panel on the day.”

A packed day at the Congress

With expert insight into macro trends in production, panels on sustainability in Asia, a produce spotlight and marketing in the retail space, there’s an incredible amount to see and do at this year’s Congress.

Visitors can choose from a plethora of interesting and informative events ranging from celebrating business excellence in Asia to Q&A’s with global thought leaders.

After attendees have taken advantage of the networking lunch, we hope many will join Mark and the panel to discuss how IP is playing an increasingly important role in the fresh produce industry.
