Under the motto "New Flowers Blooming in Xiamen - New Varieties Shining in the World", an international bedding plant show was held for the first time at Benary's Chinese breeding site at the beginning of April this year. As one of the Tangchao investors, Benary was also among the more than 70 exhibitors. Covering an area of 25,550 square meters, more than 1,000 new and proven flower varieties were presented to an international audience in Haicang District (South China).
With the support of Fleuroselect, China Flower Association and various Chinese institutions and universities, a wide range of products were presented to over 1,000 professional horticulture visitors and more than 50,000 online participants.
