About the Event

World's leading knowledge dissemination platform for the global spice fraternity.

International Spice Conference, the world’s leading knowledge dissemination and unifying platform for the global spice fraternity will be hosting the ISC 2021 virtually with focus on three aspects.

  • Knowledge Sharing
  • Networking
  • Showcasing products and services

Our galaxy of eminent speakers through their presentations, panel discussions and live Q & A sessions will keep you fully engaged. The most sought-after of these would be the crop market reviews that are highly crucial as most of us are unable to travel owing to the pandemic. ISC will offer total market overview of major crops like Pepper, Chilli, Cumin, Turmeric and Ginger. Get a detailed overview, sitting at the comfort of your home in ISC 2021.

The topics and discussions will be based on our theme ‘Beyond Traditions: Shaping a New Spice World’, which has got great relevance in the current scenario. 2020 has challenged the food community in many ways. Concerns about global food safety and security, strains on supply chains and changes in ingredients sourcing have made it more crucial than ever for ingredients suppliers and buyers to connect with their peers in the spice industry.

ISC virtual conference comes with the following benefits!

  • Convenient: Listen to sessions whenever and wherever, as often as you want. The 90 minute short sessions will easily fit in your schedule.
  • Comprehensive: Get relevant, timely information on a wide range of topics
  • Effortless: Sit back, attend the presentations, participate in live Q&As and discussion threads
  • Networking: Ample opportunities to network with delegates, have one-on-one meetings, exchange messages and lot more

Strengthening current business connections, forging new ones, sharing information and acquiring up-to-date insights have all become more pertinent for business in this fast-changing world. Global health and safety measures and restrictions on travel have look at our annual fraternity gatherings in a new light. For the virtual conference all you need is just a device with internet access.
