SHANGHAI, China: There is only one day to go until Shanghai’s New International Expo Centre will host the 21st edition of Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai.
Endorsed by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and the Bureau of State Forestry and organised by Shanghai Intex Exhibition and the country’s sole industry body for ornamental horticulture, the China Flower Association, the Hortiflorexpo IPM trade show is the fundamental point of reference for the Chinese market as well as Asia’s leading business platform in ornamental horticulture. The show is due to take place from April 20-22, 2019.
Held in odd-numbered years in Shanghai and even years in Beijing, Hortiflorexpo IPM has been is powered by IPM Essen since 2012. Last year, the Beijing show attracted 35,196 trade visitors from 46 countries and 796 exhibitors from home and abroad, showcasing their latest products and services on a 40,000m² exhibit space.
Now in its 21th year, the 2019 Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai is expected to welcome nearly 900 exhibitors from 30 countries. Visitors will be treated to a much expanded exhibition (50,000m²) and conference and workshop programme, very closely focused on key issues affecting the ornamental horticulture and gardening industry.
With Hortiflorexpo Shanghai around the corner, anticipation is running high for China’s premier horticultural trade exhibition as demand for lifestyle horticulture products continues to be strong. Now that sustainable development has become one of the top policy issues of the country’s leaders, China invests a lot in the creation of sustainable urban green spaces and afforestation projects.
“China is and will remain a market with growth chances for the future. With the China Flower Association, we have a competent partner at our side. Not least, this is also the reason why Hortiflorexpo IPM has once again grown even further and is registering an even stronger international demand,” said Oliver P. Kuhrt, CEO of Messe Essen GmbH.
Seven days after Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai Beijing will host the largest ever International Horticultural Exhibition. Over 100 countries are expected to participate in the AIPH-approved Expo 2019 Beijing to take place from 29th April to 7th October 2019 in Yanqing district of Beijing, China. Covering over 500 hectares the world event is set to attract over 15 million visitors. The Expo will be taking place close to the foot of the Great Wall in Badaling. Countries and international organisations will take their place at the Expo alongside many gardens from provinces across China. AIPH granted approval to the Expo in 2012 and have supported the project through annual inspections and reporting.
