Welcome to Amsterdam

19th ISMS Congress - “New knowledge and new contacts, creates new business”.

Dear Delegates,

The Netherlands invites you to the 19th ISMS-conference. The venue in historical Amsterdam is the “Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ”. It is an internationally renowned stage for contemporary music, and the “BIMhuis”, which is attached to it, is known for its improvised music with the focus on new developments.

This unique setting brings out the best in the performing artists and their audience and we are therefore convinced it will create the right atmosphere and inspiration for the delegates from the global mushroom industry in their continuing search for progress.

As an organising committee we are delighted to offer you an amazing program which contains all the ingredients for a successful and enjoyable week amongst mushroom friends. A total of 7 inspiring key-note lectures, 128 high class oral presentations and 144 top level posters highlight the scientific program.

A special program featuring real world commercial case studies has been organised as part of the “Marketing & Consumer research” session. The speakers will share their practical expertise in different areas of the global market, which promises to become one of the highlights of the conference. The supporting program features 12 company visits, topped up with a Welcome reception, a Conference dinner, a visit to the Dutch Mushroomdays, and still some free time left to discover and enjoy Amsterdam. It only takes a week of your time to get a unique life time memory. Do not miss it.

For further details and registration please navigate through this website. A special conference-app will be available soon. This app will be a valuable tool for all delegates providing the latest information and other smart options to support you during the conference.

The 19th ISMS conference and the 34th Dutch Mushroomdays, from the 29th May until the 3th of June in The Netherlands, will be the perfect mix of science and business, and the largest congregation of researchers, growers, and service providers for many years. To emphasize the significance of the event, the Organising Committee has created a common theme: “New knowledge and new contacts, creates new business” that both events will share.

We very much would like you to be part of this memorable week, and we look forward to having you over for an unforgettable event on mushrooms. We definitely believe there is an enormous potential for the future of the mushroom business around the world. Let’s meet up and make it happen.

Kind regards,
Piet Lempens
Chairman ISMS 2016 Organising Committee
