UK horticulture promoted at Essen trade show

A British booth is set to take pride of place in the Technology Hall at next year's IPM Essen trade show in Germany (25-28 January 2011).

The Commercial Horticultural Association (CHA), which organises trips for British companies to exhibit at foreign shows, has seen a rise in demand for exhibitor space in Essen. CHA trade association manager Stuart Booker said: "For the first time we are actually taking a satellite stand in the main Technology Hall (Hall 3) as well in Nursery Hall 10."

Companies exhibiting in the Technology Hall include Hortifeeds, which will be promoting its new organic wetter and anti-stress agent, HortiWet Organic, and Castlefield Products, which will be showcasing its range of customer trolleys and a new soil conditioner sleeve.

First-time British exhibitors to the German show include Christmas tree specialist Joseph Noblett, National Polytunnels, National Structures, Micromix Plant Health and Wondermesh.
