Photo Report: IPM Essen 2017The international floriculture sector once again gathered in Essen last week for the 35th edition of the IPM Essen. A total of 57,000 international trade show visitors came all the way to Essen to see the latest trends and innovations in the green industry.
Many exhibitors said to be exhibiting in Essen to meet with their German and international partners and welcome visitors at their booth. This year, exhibitors also confirmed an increased interest from international growers and suppliers, that even came from overseas. We spoke to growers and suppliers from countries like the United States, Canada and even far away countries like Australia and New Zealand.
Besides tons of exhibitors with plants, flowers, decoration, pots and starting material, the show was again home to a large number of technology suppliers in the field of greenhouse construction, lighting, climate control, crop protection and growing media and other growing supplies. This confirmed that the IPM has become a premier European event for greenhouse horticulture technology in general.
This is also the reason that the organization of the IPM Essen focuses more on technology and added fruit and vegetables as a focus point this year. Exhibitors with products for vegetable production in their portfolios received particular booth markings. Some of the exhibitors remained skeptic about this, as they believe the IPM should remain a floriculture event and should not diversify itself too much.
As usual our editors walked the show to learn about the latest developments in the industry. As well as this we made our traditional photo report of all the exhibitors.
