"Russians love flowers"

Sneak peek: Photo Report FlowersExpo Russia

The FlowersExpo has almost come to an end. Today is the final day of the three-day event. So far, the exhibitors are pleased with the quality and amount of visitors. At the show it is clearly visible that Russia is still a good market. Flowers are beloved items and people will not stop buying them. However, due to the low value of the rouble, the prices of the flowers are high. Therefore, less or cheaper flowers are being bought. 

According to many exhibitors, the unstable value of the rouble makes it extra challenging. Traders hardly take any risks as the values change constantly. Therefore, it is essential that the rouble will stabilize soon. The exhibitors trust the market and remain hopeful.
