It starts on Tuesday, 19 September, with retail visits and a networking dinner. Then on Wednesday, 20 September, we can promise a full-day matchmaking event under one roof at the Fresh Market B2B Meeting and Trade Show 2023.

Flower and plant professionals can explore retail business growth opportunities in Poland, the Baltic, the Balkans, and Eastern Europe during a Floral Trade Mission Poland on 19 and 20 September 2023 in Warsaw, an event being organised by FCI, AIPH, and Fresh Market Poland with the support of the Dutch Embassy in Warsaw.

This flagship event brings experts in the floral retail trade under one roof at the Mazurkas Convention Centre in Ożarów Mazowiecki (6km from Warsaw’s city centre).

Flights and accommodation are at the participant’s own expense. The Trade Mission Poland’s matchmaker is Ron van der Ploeg, a floral industry veteran and editor of FloraCulture International. He is delighted to work with the Fresh Market team in Poland and will do his utmost to arrange the most ‘flowerful’ trade delegation meetings.

The Netherlands has been chosen as a partner country, leading to a strong contingent of professionals from the Dutch flower industry at this year’s Fresh Market event. He will be happy to inform you about the special arrangements available for Dutch participants.

You can contact Ron via, or for more information, visit Trade Mission Poland 2023.
