Photo Report Naivasha Horticultural Fair
The Fair, which is considered to be the largest horticultural fair in Africa, is in its 15th year and the organization was again pleased with this year's edition. "Considering the slow state of the Kenyan Economy, we were very pleased with having about the same number of exhibitors (200)", says Naivasha Horticultural Fair Chairman Richard McGonnel. Besides that, visiting numbers were slightly up (over 3,500 visitors) and they have also seen a small increase in the small scale farm visitors. "This looks very promising", he says. "All in all, the show went very well and good business was done."
Marco Pruiksma took photos of the fair to give us an impression of the show. Click here to view the photos of the show that were taken by Pruiksma.
The exhibitors were also pleased with the number and quality of visitors. "Despite the weather (lot of rain just before the show) it was again great success and we look forward to the next edition", says Jelle Posthumus of rose breeding company United Selections. According to him, the fair was visited by a lot of people and particularly on the second day of the show, Saturday September 16.
