The development of tastier varieties and growing demand for healthier snacking options show there is huge potential in the table grape market. Consumers are leaving traditional varieties behind in favour of newer, more innovative alternatives. And having the right varietal mix is essential to satisfy market demand.

Join leading players from the Italian and European table grape industry to discuss effective strategies to grow the table grape market at Fruitnet Grape Congress, the first-ever in-person event for the European table grape industry organised by Fruitnet Media International.

Find out what growers, retailers and consumers really think about the many new varieties on offer today, and how to give new cultivars the best chance of success.

Hosted by Serroplast at its fresh produce facility near Bari, the one-day event on 4 July features a lively mix of conference sessions, networking, socialising and study tours, all set within the beautiful table grape orchards of Southern Puglia.

Puglia has been a commercial centre for table grapes for many decades. It is also now a centre of renewal in varieties and growing practices, helping to re-establish Italy as a global force in table grapes.

Fruitnet Grape Congress lets you see at first hand this renewal underway in Italy. The event offers information sessions on two stages, local and international experts, round-the-clock networking, an expo of the best table grape service companies and guided field visits to local orchards to taste the newest varieties.

Bari is easy to get to. It is served by two international airports. Plus excellent road and railways links. And Puglia has some of the most beautiful towns, villages, and beaches in Italy.
