Managers Bruno Mezzetti, Maurizio Battino and Gianluca Baruzzi are currently sending emails to experts all over the world to organise the Symposium. "We are taking into consideration operator needs and trying to follow the indications provided by breeders, operators and the various protagonists of the chain. We want this event to be shared and to provide indications to the sector for years to come. Being an international symposium, we are submitting questionnaires to experts all over the world," explained Gianluca Baruzzi.
