Testimonials about the event

  • “For me, the most important aspect of this congress is that old friends and colleagues have the opportunity to get together, because we are a community, and there’s a lot of information we can get from this friends and colleagues, and people we have not met. People at this congress have the opportunity to get out of their usual area, and learn something more”.

    FRED GMITTER - UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA

  •  “This is my third trip to Brazil, this time has been very impressive, bringing an opportunity to every scientist to be a part of the international community and exchange knowledge, strengthening connections we can use to solve the problems in the citrus world, this is a kind of laboratory”.

    PROFESSOR ZORA SINGH, FROM CURTIN UNIVERSITY/ AUSTRALIA

  • “The organization of the congress is really good. The choice of the themes, the coordination of the discussions. The main theme is very interesting. All I can say about the organization is very favorable. For us, fresh fruit producers for export, the important is knowledge and technology, mainly the innovation about our biggest threat: the HLB. In the region I live in Argentina we don’t have HLB, but it’s necessary to get to know all the experience of those who are fighting it”

    GLÓRIA PEREZ, AFINOA - ARGENTINA

  • “This congress is really well organized, even in small details. Congress organization is something extremely difficult, because although the important thing is the scientific part, the presentations, if the coffee served was bad, that’s what people will remember”.

    LUIS NAVARRO, IVIA - ESPANHA

  • “The Congress for us is being very profitable, because all the people in the sector coming here. We can see that big groups of citrus sector, not only from Brazil but also f4rom other countries are here, and it is very important for the company. As Samaritá focus is open to international market, it has been very important for us”

    MAINA DINIZ, MKT DEPT OF SAMARITÁ

  • “It is the “Orange Olympics”, the olympics of citrus production. All work developed by the researches have as objective to be presented many times in ICC congresses. It’s the third congress I have the chance to attend.  What we can see is that a lot of the things that were showed in China in 2008 has already been used in the field today. I expect to leave this congress with an overview of the things we will be able to apply almost immediately. The research has come closer to the producers’ needs and the industry as whole.”
