IOCC 7, KEW

2019

This was our last major event before the world went into lockdown. With 180 delegates from six continents. The theme was "Orchid conservation - the next generation", and we were delighted to offer bursaries to 12 early-career scientists from low- to middle-income countries. A highlight was the collaboration of the Conservation Planning Specialist Group, who organised a workshop at the Congress.
