Bizz Holland to feature 60 nurseries at IPM

At the next edition of the Internationale Pflanzenmesse (IPM) in Essen Germany (24-27 January 2017), 60 Dutch horticultural companies will be exhibiting their products and services on a new BIZZ Holland stand in the Dutch-focussed hall 12 (stand number 12A20).

The design, based on pallets, includes 60 nursery participants from Boskoop, Opheusden, Venlo and Zundert, among others. The companies will be presenting their current range of garden plants and trees for 2017.

Tours will be given at 10 am and 2 pm every day from the central information desk on the Plantarium Promotion Square (Plantarium Promotie Plein).

The international nursery trade fair, Plantarium, has a prominent presence on the BIZZ Holland stand. On the Plantarium Promotion Square, Plantarium will be presenting the theme of the 35th edition of the fair which runs from 23 to 26 August 2017. 

Meanwhile, the winners of the Dutch Flower Awards 2016 were announced at the FloraHolland Trade Fair on 3 November. This year the central theme was "sustainability".

Van Den Berg Roses, a rose grower from Poeldijk, was decorated as the most valuable supplier in the Cut Flowers category, because of their extensive environmental and social certifications and sustainable business operations. The winner in the Plants category, with branches in Hazerswoude, Boskoop and Bleiswijk, was Hoogeveen Plants, which grows climbing and fruit plants, bamboo and helleborus and is a front runner under sustainability policies.

Herburg Roses (Ethiopia), a rose grower, was announced as the winner of the Foreign Supplier category.

Also, at FloraHolland, turnover has grown five per cent and started a cost reduction programme. Turnover is about 4.6bn euros at the auction.

At IPM ESSEN 2017 the partner country will be the Netherlands. The motto will be: "Two Countries, One Passion".  Around 400 Dutch exhibitors will be at the show. The International Horticultural Forum will also deal with Dutch horticulture and will invite visitors to a discussion on January 26.
Overall, 68,000 different plant breeds will be on show.
In 2017, IPM ESSEN will address not only horticulture but also vegetable cultivation to a greater extent. This new feature will also be reflected in the invitation to compete for the IPM Innovation Award organised by the Representation of interests of the German horticulture industry (INDEGA). New products or technical innovations for the regional or supraregional production of vegetables will be distinguished.
