In this convention center, the former airport of Quito, over 115 companies, including breeders, growers, suppliers, cargo agencies and airline carriers are presenting their products and services on two floors.

The first day seems to have been satisfactory for the exhibitors and visitors. The visitors are amazed by the set up of the show, and the exhibitors about the international public that is visiting. "People from the US, Europe, China, and even Russia - where many Ecuadorian growers exhibited last week at another large flower show (FlowersExpo) - were present."

The atmosphere on the show floor is vibrant and growers and breeders put a lot of effort in presenting their products or a selection of it.

Next to the traditional Ecuadorian crop, the rose, we see more farms expanding their assortment with new crops. And as a next step, several farms started to produce “Home Made” bouquets for the US market. Besides that, many farms started to tint, spray or even tint and spray their products, mainly roses and gypsophilas.
