This year, the exhibition itself has grown another another 10% in size and will accommodate about 10% more exhibitors. The location of the event will again be the Oshwal Center in Nairobi. The organisation also expects a 15% increase in visitors; more than 4,000 visitors. Exhibiting companies will include growers, exporters, brokers, breeders, propagators, and other suppliers of the flower industry. Visitors will include flower buyers that will fly in from all over the world.
According to the organisation, the number of participating countries will be at least 50.
Many first time buyers are expected to attend this year from especially China, Russia, USA, Japan, Middle East and South East Asia, all new big potential flower consuming countries and regions that are looking more and more for Kenyan grown flowers in particular. And because of the presence of nearly all Kenyan flowers growers at this year’s IFTEX, the fair should be able to present an almost complete showcase to its attending buyers of what Kenya has to offer in terms of flowers.FloralDaily
