NL: Second edition Garden Trials and Trade welcomes international visitors

The second edition of Garden Trials and Trade was well received, the organization announces. "Exhibitors were very satisfied with the quality of the visitors. On Tuesday and Thursday, the number of visitors fell short of the totals from the previous year. The range of products exhibited in the stands, the novelty showcase and the compact and well-arranged exhibition floor all enhanced the visitor experience." 

The exhibitors and organisers thought it was a shame that the exhibition did not attract more visitors. "Although this trade fair is more about the quality of the visitors rather than the quantity, you still hope to see a certain number of visitors on the exhibition floor," said one of the exhibitors. Trade visitors were highly impressed with their experience at the trade fair and were delighted with the new range of products on display.

International visitors
The trade fair was visited by a very international group of trade representatives. Apart from all the major European markets, other visitors noted were from Australia, Canada, USA, Japan, China and Russia.

After receiving feedback from the participants on the second edition, the organisers will be able to start making plans for the third edition together with the board. The event is scheduled to take place from 9 to 11 June 2020 in the Plantarium building, Italiëlaan 4, Hazerswoude-dorp.

During the Garden Trials and Trade, 19 plants were judged by a professional judging committee from the Koninklijke Vereniging voor Boskoopse Culturen (Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society). The best novelty was: Clematis 'ST17333’ (Multi Pink), submitted by Van der Starre from Boskoop, as we reported last week
