International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and Horti ASIA sign an MoU to collaborate and to provide a knowledge platform for the horticultural industry in Asia

VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific Co., Ltd., the organizer of ‘Horti ASIA’ and DLG International, the co-organizer have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) to pave the way for collaborative education and to provide a knowledge platform for the horticultural industry in Asia. An international forum will be held by Horti ASIA 2018 between 22 and 24 August 2018 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand.

Jozef Van Assche, Executive Director, International Society for Horticultural Science said, “ISHS has over 7,000 individual members from all over the world, a substantial number of institutional members and some 60 member countries and regions. It is a major source of up-to-date information on global horticultural research. ISHS aims to promote research in all branches of horticulture.

“We are delighted to announce this collaboration with Horti ASIA. This MoU marks the start of a joint effort between one of the leading organizers in Asia, VNUE AP and the global horticulture society, ISHS. This international forum will target scientists, horticultural farmers (fruit, vegetables and flowers), ministries, government institutions and universities. We look forward to exploring relationships and the promise it holds for all parties.”

Manuel Madani, Project Manager of Horti ASIA said, “For a growing region in Southeast Asia, this is great news. Southeast Asia focuses on food safety and is getting more and more competitive for exports. Advancing technologies, dietary change for more fresh, seed developments with input from supermarkets, biological crop protection: this is a food chain that is building a new future.

“We are all very pleased to be launching this partnership with ISHS during Horti ASIA 2018. Many solutions in greenhouse technology, urban and organic farming have drawn 8,500 trade visitors and 500 top buyers from across Asia. The event is co-located with AGRITECHNICA ASIA 2018, which is a world class Agricultural Machinery and Agtech platform for Asia that will take place from 22 to 24 August 2018 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand.”
