Young International Grower Of The Year

It is important to look to the future within the ornamental horticultural industry, which is why we have partnered with Jungle Talks hold the Young International Grower of the Year.

This award celebrates young entrepreneurial professionals between the ages of 25 up to 40 years old that are participating in the Pro Manager Mastercourse organised by Jungle Talks.

The Pro Manager Mastercourse is a fortnight programme that includes educational farm tours, meetings and inspirational sessions from lead strategic partners, including Koppert Biological Systems, Dümmen Orange, Ridder, Hortilux Schrèder, Logiqs, Horticoop, Lets Grow, HortiXS, Van Krimpen and Van der Valk Systems.

These partnerships guarantee a high-level visit program and give participants ample opportunity to network with horticultural leaders at the CEO level. In addition, participants will need to work out their vision on the future of horticulture and the role of their own company during this course. Based on the visits, meetings, inspirational sessions and feedback of peers and leading floricultural CEO’s, they return to their own country and company, ready to make a difference.

By partnering with AIPH for the inaugural award ‘Young International Grower of the Year’ the students will have a chance to pitch their business ideas to the jury at the International Grower of the Year event.
