The remaining visitors included suppliers of technical equipment, journalists and media partners.
Perry van der Haak from P vd Haak Handelskwekerij hosting the FlowerTrials at his location in Westland for the first time said: "Our first participation to the FlowerTrials exceeded my expectations. Particularly, the number and quality of visitors was very high. Growers, buyers and suppliers showed genuine interest in my assortment, leading without any doubt to new business opportunities. Furthermore, I was pleasantly surprised by the perfect organisation and support we received from the organisation. I am glad to have become a member of the FlowerTrials and will definitely participate again in 2016."
Next year the FlowerTrials will take place again in week 24 i.e. from Tuesday 14 to Friday 17 June with breeders in the Westland and Aalsmeer region (NL) and Rheinland Westfalen (GE) opening their doors to show the latest innovations and assortment to growers, buyers and trade partners from all over the world.
