With its 19,000 hectares (44,000 acres) of orchards, South Tyrol is the largest contiguous apple-growing area in all of Europe. With its know-how and standards of technology, it is among the leading apple-producing regions in the world. The capital of South Tyrol is consequently the ideal location for the world-renowned tradeshow on the apple. Tradeshows are marketplaces, and Interpoma is a platform in the sector that is unique throughout the world as a place to get to know market partners and their interests.
It aims to present the entire process chain from cultivation and storage, right up to marketing for an international audience. However, it will feature apple varieties and derivatives, new approaches to sustainability, machinery and devices as well as production equipment.
The tradeshow traditionally hosts the Interpoma Congress, which is a prominent stage for innovations and startups, events and presentation of the newest developments of the industry. Market trends, varietal innovation, sustainable apple production, and high-tech fruit production are just a few highlight topics of this years Congress
Interpoma is far more than a showcase for the apple: it is about sharing opinions, industry buzz, research and innovation insights, and in particular networks and networking in the apple sector.
