LAN FANG, HEBEI: Thousands of seed traders swarmed the exhibition floor and VIP hotel trading rooms today (October 18) for the start of the 2018 Beijing Seed Congress, which marks the 26th year of the premier public seed trade exhibition. Hundreds of breeders, traders, agents and distributors are exhibiting produce samples, seeds and other complementary products at the event, which is expected to generate millions in sales revenue for the Chinese seed industry over the coming days.
Estimated to be worth about 20 billion RMB, the Chinese seed market is the largest in the world, with most seeds produced to supply domestic demand.
Held at the Langfang Ovation Seven-cultivation Hotel exhibition floor, the event will wrap up this weekend. Registration for the event open to the general public onsite. APSA’s China Liason Officer, Xiaofeng Li, and Communication Officer, Steven Layne, today toured the exhibition, visiting booths of several Chinese members.
