IPA conference Australia 2015

August 20, 2015 - August 24, 2015

VIII International Symposium on New Ornamental Crops, XII International Protea Research Symposium and XVII International Protea Association Conference.

Join us in Perth, Australia in 2015!

Please join us for a unique conference incorporating VIII International Symposium on New Ornamental Crops, XII International Protea Research Symposium and XVII International Protea Association Conference.

Combining these three conferences in one is a first. This will offer delegates more opportunities to hear from an extensive line up of speakers, while the social program and conference tours will provide opportunities to socialise with old friends and make new ones.

The International Protea Working Group (IPWG) and the New Ornamental Crops Symposia are arranged under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS).
