IWTO Congress with World Merino Conference
Mar '10
The 79th IWTO 2010 Congress will take place in France and part of it will be held jointly for the first time with the World Merino Conference in Rambouillet.

The famous Bergerie Nationale of Rambouillet is known for its exceptional flock of Merino sheep and its historical relevance going back to the time of Louis XVI. Delegates will have the opportunity to visit a unique centre for sustainable agriculture and territorial development.

This is a Congress not to be missed; under the theme "Wool – Change to a Healthier and Safer Environment", you will have unique networking opportunities with the Merino Conference delegates and a broad range of prominent speakers has been selected:

• World famous architects committed to the appliance of wool for interiors

• The official video statement from Prince Charles to be presented to delegates on his recently launched wool campaign

• Representatives from The United Nations and European Commission will offer their views on the industry in regard to animal welfare and environmental aspects
