International interest for HortiContact Tour 2018Preliminary registrations for the HortiContact Tour (20 and 21 February 2018) include growers from across the globe. They will be coming to the Netherlands, to become acquainted with the latest developments in Dutch glasshouse horticulture. Over the last period, the organisation received registrations from growers in India, England, the United States, Pakistan, Poland, and Austria. A few spots are still available for this two-day excursion.
The HortiContact Tour. Held for the second year in a row, is hosted by the HortiContact trade fair organisation (20 – 22 February 2018 at Evenementenhal Gorinchem), Uniglobe Westland Business travel, and In Greenhouses magazine. The field trip will lead to several growing companies and knowledge institutes. Through sponsored support (Grodan, Svensson, KUBO, BioBest, Mardenkro, HortiMaX, and Priva), participation in the HortiContact Tour is free. International growers need to arrange their trip to the Netherlands and accommodations themselves.
The programme for the HortiContact Tour has been rounded off, and will include both a Practice Day and a Seminar & Trade Fair Day. On the first day of the HortiContact Tour (20 February 2018), participants will visit several growers and research locations. The excursion will depart at 8:15 hours, from Rotterdam. The first stop is at 9 o’clock at tomato grower Lans in Maasdijk. The trip will then continue to the most important centre of innovation of the international glasshouse horticultural industry, World Horti Centre in Honselersdijk.
Seminar & Trade Fair Days
Day 2 centres around Gorinchem, 35 kilometres east of Rotterdam. At HortiContact’s trade fair venue, researchers of Wageningen University & research will host various lectures. Leo Marcelis (horticulture and product physiology professor) on light and LED illumination, Gerben Messelink (researcher) on integrated pest management, Anne Elings (scientific crop physiology) on developing medium technology into high-tech greenhouse production, and Frank Kempkes (researcher) on climate and energy savings. Participants are free to visit the HortiContact trade fair. With an average of over 500 participants, it is the largest and most-valued meeting opportunity for Dutch glasshouse horticulture.
