The Agricultural Chamber of North Rhine-Westphalia cordially invites to the 2017 annual IALB and EUFRAS conference in the mediaeval and university city of Münster. Invitation! Conference Languages are English and German. The rural advisors’ conference from 18th till 22nd June 2017 with the topic “Agriculture and Advice in Change – New paths between globalised markets and regional demands“ is open for registration now.

Agriculture and Advice in Change is the main topic of the 2017 IALB/EUFRAS Conference. Selected speakers are going to highlight current agricultural issues. In excursions and interactive workshops, you are going to identify prospects for the future development of farm businesses and discuss the part counselling can play in this. In North Rhine-Westphalia with a population of nearly 18 million, the most heavily populated Federal State there are 35,000 agricultural and horticultural businesses. On the one hand this proximity to the consumers creates constantly changing and repeatedly difficult framework conditions for the producers. On the other hand there are also good market opportunities for agricultural and horticultural products.

The registration is open from the 1st of February and closes on 12th of May, 2017. Register and find out more information on the Conference web page
