The Seed Association of the Americas (SAA) and the Colombian Seed and Biotechnology Association (ACOSEMILLAS) are pleased to invite you to the 6th Seed Congress of the Americas.

This event will take place in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia) a place that harmonizes the beauty of the Caribbean Sea and its amazing colonial architecture with the outstanding infrastructure for congresses and conventions. It is also a very connected city with the most important international airlines available.

This meeting represents a great opportunity for world seed companies and associated businesses to get together and discuss topics we have in common in our growing industry, to establish new business and of course to reunite with friends and colleagues. Great expositions, known speakers, the ideal event to meet professionals, colleagues and friends.

Faithfull to the motto “Promoting the Seed Business in the Americas” and the focus is on Trade and Regulations. The agenda addresses the burning issues that the industry is facing today: Intellectual Property, Biotechnology, Phytosanitary Issues and Seed Treatment. On the other hand, ACOSEMILLAS promotes the concept “Confidence seeds for a competitive agricultural Colombia”, and therefore this meeting reinforces the investment and work that industry and other institutions have been doing in research, innovation and plant breeder’s rights.  

Once again, we have organized the classic Trading Floor, a comfortable place where business may been discussed with colleagues.

The SAA Congress, which takes place every two years and brings together the leading seed companies, has become one of the most important in the Americas. It represents an extraordinary opportunity to congregate, generate new business, promote your products and become aware of relevant information and the latest novelties concerning the key topics to the industry and governments.

Your participation would be a great opportunity for you and your company.

The Congress will take place from September 5-7, 2017, at the Estelar Cartagena de Indias Hotel & Convention Center, Cartagena de Indias (Colombia).

We hope to see you soon!
