A strawberry’s journey: leadership in a digital and sustainable future

A strawberry’s journey never ends, but how can we make it even more sustainable in a digital era? The fruit sells itself by connecting the dots with innovative research, marketing and digital transformation.

With this congress we aim to create a platform for networking and information exchange based on research, growing and commercialisation of strawberries for the fresh market. The programme comprises two days of lectures by speakers, presentations and panel discussions at the Flanders Meeting & Convention Centre, as well as one day of excursions and the International Mechanisation and Demonstration Strawberry Fair organised by the Research Centre Hoogstraten on Saturday.
