Visitor Pass

Who Can Register as a Visitor?

In the past, the ISF World Seed Congresses were restricted to ISF members only. However, in 2024, we are opening our doors to non-members who are not part of the seed sector to experience the congress.

The Visitor Pass is intended for a wide group of attendees who are coming from outside the seed business but within its radius: farmers, input distributors, government/regulators, consultants, students, partner organizations, and generally those who are interested in the work of the seed sector but are not employed in it. For our delegates: think about your key clients and business partners who would like to access to the congress exhibition for a day upon your invitation (if you are bringing more than 10 visitors, a package can be arranged).

A Visitor Pass gives access to the ISF panels, exhibition area and social events (depending on the day). It does NOT give access to the Trading floor or Private Meeting Rooms. 

“I work for a seed company and would like to come for one day only.” Unfortunately, the Visitor Pass is not an option for you. If you are from a seed company, you will have to come as a full delegate, see above.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact ISF Secretariat at infowsc@worldseed.org
