The international meeting will be hosted by the city of Huelva for the first time after eight editions celebrated in Latin America in the last four years. This event will pursue the aim of analysing and defining the present and future of the sector, considering the apogee of that blueberry production is undergoing in many countries, and the growth of demand registered in recent years.

Faced with this reality, the Symposium will gather professionals of the sector, who will analyse the factors that have an influence in its development, such as prices, profitability, competitors, new producer countries, variety selection and renewal, and good use of new technologies. This will also be a good occasion to share information and design business strategies to develop the new markets that have been opened.

The ninth edition will turn Huelva into the world’s capital of blueberry, where much relevant international players of the industry, including speakers and attendees, will join each other. Big exporters and importers from the most important markets will be there, as well as auxiliary companies, organisations, experts and advisors, not forgetting the main protagonists: producers, who will come from Europe, Africa, and Latin America to share the latest knowledge and research on a fruit that is becoming a global crop in terms of production and consumption. Do not miss the opportunity to attend this Symposium.
