Following surveys with exhibitors and visitors, and after discussions at VALHOR with all the sectors in the inter-branch organisation, the organizers of the Salon du Végétal announce that the 34th edition will be held from 10 to 12 September 2019 at the Beaujoire exhibition centre in Nantes.
This edition will have two main themes:
- Plant and flower growing will be central to the show, which will be presenting the entire upstream offer in one place (innovations, growers, breeders), the INNOVERT contest, all inputs (pots, substrates, alternative methods and treatments, greenhouses, equipment and materials, etc.), and a "French Garden Trial" involving the top European players in varietal selection.
- There will be a spotlight on retail, with a pro-business presentation devised with retail stakeholders. This will present the ranges proposed by producers, horticulturalists and nurserymen, and cast a fresh eye on plants and their uses (in health, well-being and cookery).
The FNPHP is preparing its Annual Congress at the Salon du Végétal this year and will do so every two years, alternating with the years of Congress in other regions.
