It is a great pleasure for me to inform that the Indonesian Oil Palm Research Institute (IOPRI) will organize a quadrennial event, the International Oil Palm Conference (IOPC) 2018, from 17 to 19 July 2018 at The Santika Premiere Dyandra Hotel and Convention, Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia.
IOPC 2018 has a theme “Smoothing the Market Disequilibria”, and will discuss three concurrent conferences in the field of (a) Agriculture & Biotechnology; (b) Biorefinery, Health & Bioengineering; and (c) Environment, Socio Economic & Business. In addition to the Conference, a scientific field trip visiting the oil palm industry and tourism site will be conducted on the last day.
A trade exhibition to provide opportunities for delegates to share and discuss current updates on products and technologies in oil palm industry will also be held during the event. Satellite meetings which are back to back with IOPC 2018 will also attract participants from all over the world. This event is expected to be attended by more than 750 participants.
I hope this event will gain its success as previous events, and will come up with fruitful results for smoothing the oil palm market disequilibria. See you in Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia.
