ANKARA, Turkey, DELFT, Netherlands: Turkish Flowers, the International Association for Horticultural Producers AIPH and media partner FloraCulture International (FCI) announce the first ever virtual trade mission between Turkey, the Netherlands and Germany. The free event, set between 9-11 March 2021, aims to open export markets, exchange ideas and products, and scale up opportunities for the ornamentals sector and the broader horticultural industry across the three countries. Registration is now open at www.turkishflowersb2b.com
Ideally located on the crossroads between the West and the East, Turkey is a significant horticultural hub for a rapidly expanding cut flowers, plants, and landscaping market.
The Turkish Ornamental Plants and Products Exporters Association, also known as Turkish Flowers, has engaged the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) and media partner FloraCulture International (FCI) to identify, screen and arrange meetings with potential partners for each of the eleven attending growers/exporters from Turkey.
This event is for entrepreneurs from the Netherlands and Germany with interest in Turkey’s ornamentals. We welcome interest from breeders, growers, young plant suppliers, exporters, importers, landscapers, plant retailers, wholesalers, florists and horticultural suppliers.
The virtual trade mission takes place between 9-11 March 2021 from 9am to 6pm CET. During the virtual convention, the organisation team will facilitate the meetings, ensuring the appointments run smoothly and securely. Registration and attendance at the virtual trade mission are free.
Ultimately, the goal of the one-to-one meetings is to help horticultural entrepreneurs generate new sales for their company by exploring the Turkish market and gaining market insights.
With the inaugural Turkey-Netherlands-Germany Ornamental Horticulture Virtual Trade Mission, Turkey puts itself forward as a horticultural powerhouse with world-class, high-quality, sustainable flowers and plants, a benign climate and good soils, counter-seasonal supply opportunities, a young, skilled and dynamic workforce and a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Today, Turkish ornamentals producers export a ‘beautiful bouquet with mixed colours’ including fresh cut flowers, potted plants, bedding plants, trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs worldwide, are seeking to grow this business in the Netherlands and Germany.
Eleven of Turkey’s most pioneering companies in ornamental horticulture sector are due to ‘meet’ and discuss potential business opportunities with buyers in the Netherlands and Germany, interested in purchasing cut flowers, tropical foliage plants, young plants, nursery stock products, grasses, perennials for their sales departments.
