The 14th conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum® – WMFmeetsBelgium – took place in ‘A Room with a ZOO’, a state-of-the-art conference centre located in the heart of Antwerp. A Room with a ZOO is part of the Antwerp ZOO Society. Profits of congresses and events immediately support efforts on cherishing nature through animal welfare, education, and awareness building. Your participation in WMFmeetsBelgium in A Room with a ZOO contributed directly to nature conservation.
We would like to say a big thank you to all participants, sponsors, exhibitors, and media partners for taking part in this event and making it the huge success that it was. It was the best attended event until now, with 420 participants, 145 posters, and 27 sponsors/exhibitors.
And our congratulations go to the winner of the Best Poster Award, Maria Varveri (Department of Crop Science, Agricultural University of Athens, Greece) for her poster “Biological control of aflatoxins and fumonisins using Greek endemic non-aflatoxigenic strains of Aspergillus flavus in maize”.
Relive the 14th conference of
The World Mycotoxin Forum® in Antwerp!
With fond memories of the conference itself and of Antwerp, the venue, the ZOO, the conference dinner, the chocolate museum, and more, we’re looking forward to the 15th conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum®. Keep an eye on our website and social media platforms for the exact date and venue.
