XXX. INTERNATIONAL HORTICULTURAL CONGRESS
12 - 16 AUGUST 2018 ISTANBUL - TURKEY
Bridging the World through Horticulture

SPONSORSHIP & PARTNERS

Dear Partners in Horticulture,

I would like to extend a warm invitation to you to participate in the 30th International Horticultural Congress (IHC2018) which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey between 12 - 16 August 2018.

The International Horticultural Congress (IHC) is the biggest scientific event organized every four year since 1856 in the fields related to horticulture. The previous IHCs gathered around 2500-5000 participants from countries all-over the world. It is an excellent platform for scientists, technicians, students, consultants, engineers, extension agents, growers, industry, trade and consumer organizations, policy makers and other professionals having an interest in horticulture. Also it is a meeting point of science and industry and a chance bringing the scientific advances to the use of practice and bringing the problems faced in practice into the scope of research and innovation. Both sides could use the Congress as a platform for sharing their experiences and exchanging their knowledge and know-how for a more sustainable future.

IHC2018 is an ideal springboard for our industry partners to reach different actors of horticulture. As a sponsor, you will not only have the chance to broaden your reach, but also demonstrate your active role and commitment in horticultural science. This document provides detailed information on strategic opportunities to gain valuable interaction with your target audience, and at the same time, work together with us to achieve the breadth and depth of collaboration and scientific exchange.

Istanbul is the only city bridging two continents in the world, Asia and Europe. The motto of IHC2018 is decided as ‘Bridging the World through Horticulture' and this bridging role is not limited to participants or countries but embraces linking the scientific community and the industry through research and innovation. We can assure that the IHC2018 will be an opportunity for all who attend to experience a pleasant multi-cultural atmosphere, a valuable scientific program accompanied with technical tours, a magnificent city, and warm Turkish hospitality. On behalf of IHC2018,

On behalf of IHC2018, I welcome you to Istanbul. With warm regards,

Prof. Dr. Yüksel TÜZEL
Congress President
