Cucurbitaceae 2022 brings together scientists from around the world for an in-depth exploration of new frontiers in cucurbit research and development.

Sponsoring this event gives your organization valuable exposure to international scientists and managers working across a range of disciplines in the public and private sector, to discuss advances in Cucurbit research and development. The meeting will also feature a general poster session, crop-specific meetings, a Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative meeting, and a field tour of the local seed industry research facilities.

Sponsor contributions will be used to help offset costs of facilities, refreshments, meals, and reduced fees for students. We gratefully acknowledge your support of previous meetings and look forward to your help in building on those successes in 2022. We encourage sponsorships from both public and private sectors, and your participation can create lasting impact for the future of your organization and the cucurbits industry.
