Despite the fact that the national currency dropped significantly in recent years, the atmosphere was good at the exhibition. According to many exhibitors, the Ukrainian people are flower minded and are still buying flowers, but a bit less and the cheaper ones.

This year the exhibition hosted a record high number of 36 Dutch participants, this large collective pavilion was organised by the company FlowerFame from The Netherlands. The company FlowerFame was launched in 2006 by Topflower BV (previously known as Holland Flower Partners) and Blooming (Peter van der Sluis). They have been present on the flower exhibition in Kiev since 2006.

Hennie Brockhoff of FlowerFame and agent of Schreurs in Eastern Europe says; “We have seen a large increase in companies which are interested in the Ukrainian market and they have all reason to be as we strongly believe that the Ukrainian market is recovering and will continue to grow in the coming years. This offers many new opportunities to exporters of flowers and plants, breeding companies and other suppliers of horticultural products. We are already looking forward to organise the collective participating once again in 2017.”

Apart from The Netherlands the following countries were represented at the exhibition; Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Israel, South Africa and Ukraine.

Flower Expo Ukraine 2017 is scheduled for 4-6 April and will once again take place in the International Exhibition Centre (IEC).
