The Hortiflorexpo IPM Beijing 2018 is in full swing. The new China International Exhibition Center opened its doors yesterday and the fair will last till May 12. 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. According to them, it again is a busy show. "The majority of the visitors come from China, but there are a lot from other countries as well", says Kapiteijn.
