AHC 2020 & Horti ASIA 2020 Bridge Science and Commerce
The 3rd Asian Horticultural Congress (AHC 2020) to be held in Bangkok in parallel with Horti ASIA 2020 hosted by the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and the Horticultural Science Society of Thailand (HSST), and co-hosted by VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific.
“Researchers, professors, students, government agencies, associations, growers, entrepreneurs and other professionals with an interest in horticulture are cordially welcome to AHC 2020. You will not only meet your friends in the horticultural sphere, but will also experience the hospitality of the Thai people in the land of smiles.”
“Knowledge is at the core of it all in today’s horticulture industry. Day to day, it drives companies’ R&D forward. Horti ASIA and AGRITECHNICA ASIA warmly welcome the AHC. It is scientific discovery that inspires visionaries and enthusiasts to create solutions for the markets here. We are all dedicated to meet the UN global food challenges.”
Key challenges that lie ahead are food safety, water efficiency, post-harvest and cold chain, and making horticultural quality consistent. When we achieve an increase in product quality, Southeast Asia will become more competitive. Today’s access to advanced technologies, the greater demand for fresh produce as a result of dietary changes, seed breeding development, reverse engineered from demand, and biological crop protection are driving the food chain.
We are all very pleased to be launching the partnerships with the Asian Horticultural Congress and Horti ASIA 2020, a proven regional hub for horticultural technology. Many solutions in regard to greenhouse technology and urban and organic farming have drawn almost 11,000 trade visitors and 829 top visionaries from across Asia. In 2020, we expect further growth in the number of participating countries like Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and the Philippines.”
The 3rd Asian Horticultural Congress (AHC 2020) will take place from 7 to 9 May in Bangkok, Thailand in parallel with Horti ASIA 2020. The objectives are to provide a platform for horticulturists, researchers, young scientists, entrepreneurs and those connected with horticulture and its related industries to share their R&D and innovation; to showcase Thailand’s horticulture at an international level; to create a network of technical cooperation among Asian horticultural researchers, and to enhance trading in the Asian region by promoting economic and social cooperation, culture and tourism both domestically and internationally.
