On Monday, May 30, the doors of the Oshwal Convention Center in Nairobi will again open for IFTEX, normally a yearly trade event for the international flower trade industry in Kenya, now a comeback after three years of absence due to Covid-19.
For three days, more than 130 Kenyan and international companies will present their products and services. And with the growing number of registered international flower buyers, it again seems to be the place for growers and buyers to meet and boost business.
Contribute to the recovery and strengthening of the floral industry
With this fair, the organization, HPP Exhibitions, hopes that it will contribute to the recovery and strengthening of the floral industry. "Growers and buyers being confronted with strongly increased costs from every thinkable corner and have to deal with various other economic threats, are facing real though challenges. It will take them a lot of effort and entrepreneurial courage to overcome all the hurdles that will have to be taken this year and beyond."
Flowers by Sea Conference
Over the last years, and still, logistics are a challenge all over the world, also in Kenya. Prices of air freight skyrocketed over the last years, and growers and exporters are eagerly looking for alternatives, shipping flowers by sea, for example. And this year, IFTEX is supporting this development as they are organizing a conference on this topic. On Tuesday, May 31st, the conference will be held about 'moving flowers to their destination by sea freight.' It's a morning session for flower growers and (international) flower importers on the latest developments in flower transportation with sea containers.
