Russia's potential reflected on busy edition of Moscow Greenhouse Expo

Last week from June 14 to 16, suppliers of greenhouse technology, structures, seeds and other horticultural heavyweights gathered in Moscow for the 2017 edition of the Greenhouse Expo. Organized for the first time in a new hall of the VVC All-Russian Exhibition Centre, the trade show provided room for more stands and exhibitors. 

This growth is in line with the continuously increasing demand for greenhouse technology in Russia. As described before, Russia provides serious room for more greenhouse acreage and investors are eager to team up with international suppliers to realize this goal. 

This was also confirmed by trade show visitor Chris Aarts of C&E Holland, a company specialized in the manufacturing of tomato hooks. Chris has seen his exports to Russia increase again over the last year. "The Russian market is continuously in motion, expanding and building new projects. We again exported more tomato hooks to Russia this year."

Chris enjoyed visiting the trade show. "It has become a solid and professional event that attracts serious people from the industry. I was pleased with the quality of exhibitors and visitors."

Chris was so kind to submit a few pictures as an impression of the trade show:
