The 9th edition of the Chinese Mushrooms Days was organised from 14 to 17 November 2015 in the Wanda Realm hotel in Zhangzhou, Fujian. Bigger and with a more international signature than ever before. The event is now considered the key annual meeting for the mushroom industry in Asia. Visitor numbers reflected this significance with some 1200 visitors from more than 20 countries, including a large Dutch delegation. The extensive programme offered a series of interesting lectures and workshops for professionals in virtually all edible mushroom segments. A report can be found in Mushroom Business no 74.
