About the Conference

The international movement for the medicinal mushroom industry marked an important milestone when the International Journal of Medicinal Mushroom (IJMM) was launched in 1999 by Begell House Inc. (USA). This then led to the inaugural International Medicinal Mushroom Conference (IMMC) held in Kiev, Ukraine, in 2001 when it was agreed that there would be an IMMC every two years. The IMMC2 was held in Pattaya, Thailand, in 2003; The IMMC3 was held in Port Townsend, USA, in 2005; and the IMMC4 was held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2007. The IMMC5 was held in Nantong, China, in 2009. In 2011 the IMMC6 was held in Zagreb, Croatia. The IMMC7 was held in Beijing, China, in 2013. The IMMC8 was held in Manizales, Colombia and the IMMC9 was held in Palermo, Italy. The 10th International Medicinal Mushroom Conference will be held in Nantong, China, 19-22 September 2019.About Nantong
