UK: Four Oaks Trade Show 2017 nearing the end

The Four Oaks Trade Show is on and today is already the final day of this two-day event. Over 400 companies are presenting their products and services at the 23 acre Four Oaks nursery site in Cheshire, UK. Currently 17,000 m2 is used for the exhibition.

Plants are the most prominent feature of the show, accounting for over 50% of exhibiting companies, with associated supplies and services from production to point-of-sale. Exhibits include a wide range of glasshouse equipment and machinery from seeders and handling equipment to fully automated transplanting systems. Over 40 percent of the exhibiting companies are from overseas.

The show is in full swing and exhibitors and visitors are posting photos on their social media pages. We made an overview of the pictures that were posted yesterday September 5 (the first day of the show) and today (September 6) to give you an impression of the show.
