WESTLAND, Netherlands: Building on the success of last year’s educational tour, Netherlands and Costa Rica-based content marketing specialist and networking event organiser Jungle Talks is once again hosting the Pro Manager Floriculture master class and is looking forward to making the event even bigger and better. The master class will provide sixteen of the world’s best and brightest flower farmers with two weeks of learning opportunities and a unique behind-the-scenes look at leading horticultural businesses in the Netherlands.
Commenting on the upcoming event (October 27 – November 8, 2019) organiser Ed Smit said, “Almost all participants will fulfil different management/board of director roles in the near future and are highly qualified, working at leading floriculture companies around the world. We are delighted to announce a total of sixteen entrepreneurs have signed up, representing the next generation of creative talent in the sector.”
Participants come from Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, Colombia, Kenya, Zambia, Spain, Poland, Denmark, Iran, China and Vietnam.
Smit went on to say that the group represents a broad cross-section of the ornamentals industry, both in terms of geography and crop production. On board are cut flower growers while others produce potted plants and starter plants.
A vital part of the master course, company visits will offer the group ‘onsite insights’ at Ter Laak Orchids, Optiflor, Together2Grow, Pligt Professionals, Ammerlaan TGI, Berg Roses, Zuidplas and Arcadia. Participants will also visit the Aalsmeer Trade Fair, IFTF, the Technical University of Delft and the Westland horticultural museum.
