Plantarium 2018 is in the stating blocks. The floor plan has been finalised and the outlines of the trade fair have been laid out. With just over a week to go, preparations are on schedule. "It was a challenge to design the entrance to the new location in such a way that visitors will imagine themselves in a green oasis as they enter. I don't want to give away too much, but we believe we have succeeded in doing so," says trade fair manager Jos van Lint.
In August 2018, Plantarium will take place at a new location under one roof with GROEN-Direkt. A new location also means a new layout for the trade fair. Besides the green participants, suppliers will also be given more space to present and demonstrate their innovations.
Plantarium and GROEN-Direkt join physically in 2018. Plantarium will take place in the hall adjacent to GROEN-Direkt's Autumn trade fair in August 2018. So there will be two trade fairs under the same roof. This will create the largest international garden plant event of the year with a complete package of nursery supplies, where trade and production do business in an inspiring environment.
The 35th edition of the Plantarium trade fair, which was held in Hazerswoude/Boskoop from 23 to 26 August, was successful. Visitors greatly appreciated the new design of the trade fair, in which inspiration and experience dominated. The cooperating exhibitors in the Houses of Inspiration were also satisfied with the result.
