Europom® 2017

Dear friends,

EUROPOM® 2017 The European fruit exhibition will take place from 5 to 8 October 2017 in Olomouc. The main purpose of Europom is to promote and support the diversity of our fruit varieties in order to preserve and further use them. We would very much like to invite you to this event and we hope that you will have the possibility to join us.

Similarly to the former EUROPOM®-­‐Exhibitions, we expect participants from at least 10 European countries, who
will bring diverse regional fruit varieties. The event thus is an excellent opportunity to meet experts from all over
Europe with their different types of fruits and to benefit from their expertise.

Czech Union of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners has been appointed by the European Consorcium and will be a great host of the 2017 Europom meeting. Europom promotes national fruit growers, who focus on historical varieties, which are usually not represented on the market.

We luckily have the opportunity to be part of the event 'Hortikomplex',
the biggest ecological exhibition in the Greater Region with a count of 30 000 visitors .
