UMDIS, organizer of the exhibition-conference “Ukrainian Mushroom Days” announces the postponement of the event to June 2021.

Currently, Ukraine is in conditions of high incidence of COVID-19, quarantine restrictions, limited ability to fly and cross borders. And in this situation, we have a significant risk of not giving guests the full set of positive impressions that we consider it our duty to provide.

We will make “Ukrainian Mushroom Days” at the highest level! But we have to ask to wait until the beginning of next summer. Now we are postponing the dates of the event to June 2021 and crossing our fingers so that by this time the situation is safe enough to hold the best Ukrainian mushroom days.

Refund information can be found here here.
