Tickets are now available for the AIPH International Grower of the Year (IGOTY) Awards, which takes place on 24th January 2023 at the Atlantic Hotel alongside IPM Essen, Germany.
Supported by Headline Sponsor Royal FloraHolland and Founding Partner FloraCulture International, the 13th edition of the AIPH IGOTY Awards recognise best practice in horticulture by the top ornamental production nurseries from around the globe and celebrates the expertise and energy they give to the industry.
The 2023 IGOTY Awards Ceremony returns this year to Essen, Germany, to coincide with the much anticipated IPM Essen trade show. The evening event includes a drinks reception with plenty of food and an opportunity to network with others in the industry. Following this, the awards will be presented for the five categories: Cut Flowers and Bulbs, Young Plants, Finished Plants and Trees, Sustainability, and Inspiring Business.
From among these categories, only one winner will be crowned the ‘AIPH International Grower of the Year 2023’ and receive the ‘Gold Rose’ – the industry’s most coveted prize last won by Metrolina Greenhouses, USA.
“It’s a great testament to our whole team, all 3,000 of our employees, everybody back in America, who made this possible. This Gold Rose is indicative of all the work everybody put in,” said Abe van Wingerden, co-CEO of Metrolina Greenhouses.
AIPH has once again partnered with Jungle Talks for the second ‘Young International Grower of the Year’ Award. Participants of Jungle Talks’ Pro Manager Mastercourse will have a chance to pitch their ideas to the jury and the most inspiring candidate will be chosen as the winner.
Tickets for the evening reception and awards ceremony, including enough food to fill stomachs, cost €50 (incl. VAT) per person. Groups of five tickets are available for the discounted price of €200 and groups of ten for €350. To secure your place, visit the IGOTY Event Page. Tickets can be cancelled and refunded (minus a €10 admin fee) until 13th January 2023.
