For many fruit growers, the winter is a relatively calm period. So it's a time to make plans, gain inspiration and ideas, and to visit trade shows and seminars. There is sufficient choice: a trade show that focuses on fruit growing is held in more or less every country and every fruit-growing region. There are also numerous fruit sector days, congresses, seminars, study days, informative meetings, or whatever they are called, with lectures covering a wide range of subjects. So sufficient to start the new season with new knowledge and insights.
