Sincerely invite you to participate the 9-th International Seabuckthorn Association Conference (ISA-2022) which will be held on May 25-28 at Thessaloniki, Greece, 2022. For the first time in our association history the Conference will take place in Greece  –  the territory  where the origin story of Hippophae came from. Combination of climate conditions and modern approaches in cultivation technologies leads to successful results in seabuckthorn industry in Greece. Within last several years seabuckthorn plantations in Greece rise up from mostly nothing to more than 200 hectares, providing both high productivity and unique palatability.

You should be a part of the most important event in our seabuckthorn society and meet relevant researches in different fields of  activity including breeding, cultivation, processing, pharmacy, marketing etc.

It is hard to believe that seabuckthorn in Greece, despite of extremely hot climate condition during summer time, develops even better compare to Siberia, where most of varieties growing in Greece are from. We consider this area as one of the most promising in Europe, providing productivity up to 20 tons per hectare of large berries with excellent taste. It is interesting to know that seabuckthorn in Greece completely ripen in June - the earliest in the world. It opens new horizons for business, new approaches in marketing focused on fresh consumption but not only processing. We invite you to participate the Conference both as scientific attendee as well as  commercial partner. Flexible terms for sponsors are provided.
