Global Berry Congress, the world’s leading event for the international soft fruit business, has been moved to 22-24 June 2020 in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Announcing the revised dates, organiser Fruitnet Media International said it had reached the decision to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in the annual event.

“The spread of the coronavirus across Europe in the last fortnight has been faster than any of us thought possible,” said Chris White, Fruitnet managing director. “And there is every likelihood that some or all of the measures now taken in Italy may be replicated in other parts of Europe in the coming weeks.”

He added: “Our primary concern must be for the health and wellbeing of everyone who attends Global Berry Congress. We believe a postponement is in the best interests of every delegate, speaker, exhibitor, and sponsor, and of course all our staff and suppliers.”

Global Berry Congress 2020 takes place at the Beurs-WTC in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
