We have set up various themed areas and network lounges. There will also be food plazas that increase the experience.  With this new layout, we want to make the exhibition for the international market even more interesting. Furthermore, we have expanded our exhibition team and strengthened it with Ceoray Rozenboom,  as the new point of contact for HortiContact 2020”, says Schonewille.
