Japan: IFEX 2017 is on

The IFEX 2017 is on. This trade show took off yesterday and will last till October 13th. It is being held concurrently with Gardex, Agri World and Tool Japan in the Makuhari Messe in Tokyo. Visitors and exhibitors from all over the world are attending the show to try one's luck in Japan. 

Exporting flowers to Japan, however, has been more difficult over the last two years due to the increased and fluctuating value of the Japanese Yen. Both, the increase and the fact that it is fluctuating makes importing products more expensive and risky and therefore becomes less attractive.

Nevertheless, Japan remains a large market with a lot of potential that exporting companies are eager to exploit. And in order to enter or expand your business relations in Japan, IFEX seems to be the gateway.  

Below some pictures that were posted on Social Media to give an impression of the show.
