The board of the Mushroomdays Foundation announces that the next edition of the largest global mushroom tradeshow  “The Mushroomdays” in The Netherlands, will be held on 22-23-24 May 2019. The location for it remains “The Brabanthallen” in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

The board concluded from the questionnaires sent out to the participants and the visitors that the set up and the formula meet their demands fully and will therefore be continued in the same way. You can find the results of the questionnaires on . Mushroomdays 2016 has been a special one, as it was combined with the 19th ISMS-conference to form a massive week on mushrooms for 3.500 people involved in the global mushroom industry.

The visitors of the Mushroomdays have a preference for a next edition in 2018, as where the exhibitors strongly prefer 2019. After consulting the exhibitors, the board of the Mushroomdays Foundation decided in favour of 2019 and it was decided that another evaluation will be made after the 2019 edition to decide the date for the edition after the 2019 one. Exhibitors as well as organizers are aiming to continue the Mushroomdays as an event not to be missed on the international agenda.

We already look forward to see all of you again in The Netherlands.

Mushroomdays 2016

Three years after the previous edition, the 34th edition of the Mushroomdays will be held in the “Brabanthallen” in ’s-Hertogenbosch from June 1st - June 3rd 2016. Over 80 exhibitors will be present to give you a warm welcome. This 34th edition is combined with the 19th ISMS conference in Amsterdam to form a week, totally focused on all possible aspects of mushrooms. The gathering of over 3000 scientists, producers, marketers, suppliers and others involved or interested in mushrooms makes it a massive event for the global mushroom industry. The theme for the upcoming week on mushrooms in The Netherlands is therefore:

New knowledge and new contacts, creates new business”.  

The combination of the ISMS conference and the Mushroomdays gives both events a boost in number of visitors and is therefore ideal for company presentation. Make sure you get the maximum exposure out of this unique occasion and be visually present in Amsterdam as well as in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. 

Many national and international exhibitioners present their products and services to visitors from over more than 64 countries during the exhibition.

Mushroom Days 2013
“Mushrooms, a healthy business!”

The 33st  edition of the Mushroom Days has been a great success. For three days the Brabanthallen were filled with people from all around the world who were participating in the Mushroom Industry.  Over 2.200 visitors of 62 countries visited this dynamic exhibition. They were welcomed by 475 staff people of 83 companies which presented themselves and their products and services.

During the Mushroom Days 83 exhibitors have presented themselves with their products and services. There were beautiful presentations of all kind of stands. The pictures will be soon presented at the website of the Mushroom Days: . There were  59 exhibitors form the Netherlands and 24 International exhibitors. During this edition there were also companies from China, America and South-Korea represented. The Brabanthal has been an excellent choice on behalf of this exhibition, which is still growing in number of exhibitors.

There are more and more convincing evidence that eating mushrooms is a healthy eating habit. They are delicious and more and more people within easy reach, making them even more attractive. This message we want to convey as an organization with the theme of this exhibition: Mushrooms, a healthy business. Unmistakable extends the production of mushrooms spread over the world. A wide assortment of mushrooms and various other species in more and more countries visible. A wide range of cultivation systems with a large variation in the raw materials (often of organic residues) can be used in order to make the production possible. It provides a rich array of healthy, delicious mushrooms on. With our theme: Mushrooms, a healthy business we therefore say nothing much. We can look back on a very successful event and welcome you at the Mushroom Days 2016.
