This year, 800 exhibitors - their highest number of exhibitors so far - from more than 30 countries are showing their products and services.

Harry Bouwmans of Desch Plantpak, Lennaert Kapiteijn of Kapiteyn Flower Bulbs and Shay Lehrmann of Aviv Flowers are also exhibiting at the show and took some pictures to give us an impression of the show.
