BOSKOOP, Netherlands: This year’s tree nursery trade fair Plantarium, which will be held in conjunction with the Danish trolley fair Groen-Direkt from August 21-23, will have Greenspiration as its theme.
Now in its 38th year, Plantarium is expected to attract over 300 exhibitors who will showcase a full range of nursery stock products and services for the consumer and institutional market. In addition, nursery suppliers will focus on the latest developments in technology while the show’s novelty showcase is sure to attract huge crowds.
One of the highlights of the show will be Greenspiration Plaza which will host a range of product presentations, seminars and demos. Key note speakers will touch on the myriad of initiatives in city tree planting, often backed by impressive funding and challenging time lines. The questions the educational programme will try to answer are: How can the industry deal with this in a professional manner and how can it prepare itself?
