The conference programme reflects the theme of Working Together for Better Plant Health with presentations from international industry experts who describe what the industry itself is doing to tackle the threats posed by notifiable pests and diseases.


Mr Ralf Lopian, Chair of the International Steering Committee for the IYPH 2020, will provide the conference keynote speech.

Mr John van Ruiten, Director of Naktuinbouw in the Netherlands is one of the speakers and will describe the structure and process of value added quality-plus systems that support different sectors of the ornamental horticulture industry.


AIPH undertook a survey to gather information about industry-led plant health initiatives to assist in improving plant health systems and practices throughout the global supply chain. Case studies presented in this conference provide an overview and a comparison of how voluntary schemes are established and implemented around the world.

This conference will be of interest to growers, breeders, traders, retailers, associations, exhibitions, regulators, and anyone that cares about reducing plant health threats while maintaining a thriving horticultural trade.

The event is free.
