The International Grower of the Year awards are where global horticulture celebrates the best in ornamentals production. Last year ornamentals growers from Colombia, Russia, the Netherlands, China, Denmark, the UK and Belgium were IGOTY finalists.

This is an invitation to growers, traders, suppliers, retailers, business leaders and all those linked to the ornamental horticulture industry. The awards bring together the international industry for a unique networking opportunity, whilst also celebrating the world’s best in horticultural production.

We are inviting people from all over the world to get involved. Enter the competition to receive international recognition and coverage, showcase your company to the industry’s finest by sponsoring the awards, or treat employees and VIP clients and be our guest.


“This past year we got amazing coverage, literally all over the world. The owners and workers were all very excited. We were humbled and it really did motivate us to do even better. It really was a very huge moment for Costa Farms!” Mike Rimland Costa Farms, USA, IGOTY winner 2016.

Due to popular demand the awards will again take place during IPM Essen, Germany. The event commences with a drinks reception, followed by a gourmet gala dinner and awards ceremony. After the awards, there will be an evening of celebration with live entertainment and international networking.
