Quite a walk
Exhibitors were mostly positive, although some wondered whether things hadn't grown a bit too big. Even if one would visit three days, it would still be practically impossible to see everything. To illustrate the size: if one wanted to go from one end to the other, they would have to walk about 1 kilometer.

In addition to the many striking stands, plenty of innovations were on show, and presentations to attend in the FloraHolland House. Various speakers discussed trends in marketing, how to bring green to the consumer, the new 24/7 Green TV channel was launched, the Hillenraad presented itself, and in general it was a constantly busy meeting place for exhibitors and visitors.
