New dates confirmed for the WPTC congress in San Juan

06/03/2020 - WPTC - 2020 WPTC congress


The WPTC has been continuously monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in relation to the congress to be held in San Juan, Argentina on 15-18 March 2020.

In light of the surge of cases observed the last days in Europe and the rest of the world and for the safety of all participants, as well as the public health of Argentina, which has only 3 imported cases confirmed today, we are announcing that the WPTC and the Government of San Juan have decided to postpone the 14th World Processing Tomato Congress and the 16th ISHS Symposium on the Porcessing Tomato due to be held in San Juan, Argentina. 

The new date for the event is the second week of November this year, from Sunday 8 to Thursday 12 November 2020. 

This decision comes after much thoughtful consideration of our team and the Government of San Juan, as well as observing the directives of WHO and local health authorities. We are sure we are making the right decision so as not to jeopardize the health and safety of registrants, staff, and the public.

Please do re-book your tickets according to the new date, as well as re- organizing your plans outside the Congress itself.

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the coronavirus and we hope this epidemic will end soon.

Thank you for your patience as we had to make a last minute decision in a challenging situation.

Dimitris Nomikos
WPTC President
