Global Berry Congress 2020 has been postponed for a second time due to the COVID-19 crisis and is now scheduled to take place in Rotterdam on 7-9 December 2020. The organisers say that the move is intended to give the global berry business as long as possible to deal with the impact of COVID-19 and to come together ahead of the new marketing campaign that starts in the new year.
The event had already been postponed from March to June this year. According to Fruitnet managing director Chris White, the move is intended to give the international berry business as long as possible to deal with the impact of Covid-19 and for it to come together ahead of the new marketing campaign that starts in the new year.
“We are confident that in six months Global Berry Congress can provide a moment for berry businesses both to share best practice on some of the lessons learned from the current coronavirus crisis and, crucially, to prepare for the sales and marketing campaigns from January 2021,” he said.
“The gradual release from lockdown now underway in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe as well as significant travel restrictions that are in place all over the world make it impossible to hold to our current dates for Global Berry Congress at the end of June.”
Purchased tickets remain valid for the new event dates and a confirmation email will be sent closer to the event.
