New International Horticulture Trade Fair to Launch November in HollandSource: International Floriculture Trade Fair

HPP Exhibitions plans to launch a new expo, the International Horticulture Trade Fair in Vijfhuizen in the Netherlands.

HPP Exhibitions plans to launch a new expo, the International Horticulture Trade Fair (IHTF), in November on the fairgrounds of Expo Haarlemmermeer in Vijfhuizen in the Netherlands. The IHTF will be organized simultaneously with the existing International Floriculture Trade Fair (IFTF) expo, already taking place at the same fairgrounds in Vijfhuizen. In addition, the FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer will be held during the same dates as IFTF and IHTF. All exhibitions will run from Nov. 6 through Nov. 8, 2013. With no International Horti Fair scheduled for 2013, HPP Exhibitions decided to present IHTF as an alternative for technical horticultural suppliers in Holland. The IFTF expo has been located at the Harrlemmermeer fairgrounds since 2010. “This is an important step into the direction of one big trade fair in Holland for horticulture, lifting the industry to its next level by growing towards a world horticultural trade fair,” says Dick van Raamsdonk, director of the expo. “As many in the industry have been wanting to bring the different trade fairs together at one location for some time, this opportunity is an excellent chance to achieve that goal. The fact that, not the RAI in Amsterdam nor the flower auction in Aalsmeer, but Expo Haarlemmermeer in Vijfhuizen, has been chosen by HPP as home base for IFTF and IHTF, [is proof of] the potential of Expo Haarlemmermeer. Moreover, the location is very close to where the FloraHolland Trade Fair, being held in the flower auction in Aalsmeer, takes place.” For more information, visit
