AIPH grants two major 2018 industry trade events seal of approval

Two major 2018 industry trade events have gained the approval of the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH).  AIPH has approved International Horticultural Exhibitions for many years but extended this to cover trade exhibitions recently with the first D Category Expo approved by AIPH in 2017.  This was Greentech, a major event for growers that will take place in RAI, Amsterdam in the Netherlands from 12-14 June 2018.  The exhibition is aimed at professionals in the horticulture industry and will include numerous educational sessions with a focus on crop production.

The second is Flormart which will take place in Padova, Italy on 19-21 September 2018.  Flormart will include exhibitors from around the world as well as growers and suppliers from Italy.  It will include conferences and seminars for all those with an interest in the horticultural supply chain.  The AIPH 70th Annual Congress will take place alongside Flormart this year, bringing a wider international audience to the event which is growing year on year.

To gain the approval of AIPH as D Category exhibitions applicant shows must demonstrate high quality organisation and strong international participation.  They must offer excellent value to visitors and high levels of care to international participants.

Join growers and industry associations from around the world at the AIPH Congress in Padova

The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) will hold its 70th Annual Congress in Padova, Italy from 17-22 September 2018.  The Annual Congress is open to members and non-members and includes conferences, discussion, networking and professional tours that will prove highly valuable for everyone who attends.  The AIPH Annual Congress is always a very international event with delegates from all over the globe, all focused on promoting the ornamental horticulture industry.

This Congress is organised with the support of the Italian Nurserystock Exporters Association, ANVE, as well as the Flormart Trade Fair which will run alongside the Congress.  The event will incorporate an AIPH International Horticultural Expo Conference for all those involved with Expos.  There will also be an AIPH International Green City Conference to bring together experts and knowledge on urban greening from around the world.

There will be time to visit the AIPH-approved, Flormart Trade Fair and to visit premier Italian growers in the world-famous growing region of Pistoia.  Delegates will also be able to visit Venice and the fabulous Botanic Gardens in Padova.
