The IPM Dubai is in full swing. This three day event, that took off yesterday, will last until October 7. This year, the exhibition has extended in size: it is 40% larger compared to last year. "Today is the second day and it seems to be a lot busier than yesterday. We see a lot of traders and a lot is going on. Seminars are given, bouquets are designed and so on. The exhibition is professionally organized, together with the IPM Essen," said Ruud Emmerik, personal seller at FloraHolland who is exploring the show with his colleague Nico Kortekaas.

According to Emmerik, there are many Asian and Africa products on display. "The African rose especially is well represented, but there are not that many Dutch growers at this show. This is a pity, there are so much opportunities here for the Dutch plant growers," says Emmerik.

"By attending this exhibition, you can learn something about floriculture from another side," says Emmerik. "Different cultures, different point of views, people from all over the world. We, together with the few Dutch - some orchid growers, some propagators and some substrate suppliers- over here agree with the fact that not much attention is given to this show by the Dutch. The exclusive segment especially is worth seeing."
