Generally speaking, the floriculture industry is doing pretty well. That's also evident when looking at the number of attendants this week in Aalsmeer and Vijfhuizen. During the first two days, the FloraHolland Trade Fair (FHTF) in Aalsmeer welcomed 16,000 visitors from all corners of the world. At the IFTF in Vijfhuizen, company representatives from 125 different countries visited.
While the fair in Aalsmeer is at its limits in terms of growth, the IFTF has been steadily growing bigger, with a 15% larger show floor, 10% more exhibitors and more country pavilions. In the aisles, there's plenty of talk about, themes like sustainability, new introductions and expansion.
We were at the shows in Vijfhuizen and Aalsmeer this week, and we're working on extensive photo reports. Below you'll find an appetizer.
While we did our best to take as many pictures as possible, given the size of the events we may have missed you. Of course we would appreciate if you could send us a picture by e-mail!
