The 5th ICMBMP, China, April 2005.

  • From April 8-12, 2005, the Fifth International Conference on Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products (ICMBMP) was held in Shanghai, China.
    The event, housed in the Everbright hotel, was extra large in every respect. Mushroom Business was there, and we published a special on the conference and developments in China, in the June issue (nr. 11). Heres an impression in 20 pictures. For the stories, you would need the magazine.
