Pick up HortiDaily/FloralDaily Greenhouse Guide in Foyer Grugahalle stand A22

Vivid start of IPM Essen

The IPM Essen started this morning. There is no doubt that this trade fair has become the most important event for European horticulture and is very internationally oriented. More than 1,500 exhibitors from around 45 nations are exhibiting at the show. The atmosphere at the exhibition floor is already very vivid. Many seem to have had a good year and have high hopes for 2018.

Also this year, the editorial teams of our Floral and Veggie newsletters, FloralDaily, BPNieuws, HortiDaily and Groentennieuws will be present to make a complete photo report of the show, which will be published on January 29.

Besides that, we will also have a booth where you can pick up your free HortiDaily/FloralDaily Greenhouse Guide in the Foyer Grugahalle stand A22.

Below some pictures to give you an impression of the show:

Kees Waque and Pascal Rossen of Desch Plantpak presenting three of their novelties; a new orchid tray (the one Rossen is holding), paperpot tray (the one Waque is holding) and the Aqua Max (the container on the floor).

Frank de Greef of Fleurizon holding the Ranunculus Yoco Sun. They introduced 10 of these ranunculur varieties with different colors of leaves, flowers and flower shapes to the German market last year and they were completely sold out. This year, more will be available and Frank has high hopes for the Yoco Sun line.

Audun Hem Larsen of Oboya showing one of their biodegradable pots. They are supplying biodegradable pots for a while now, but due to the increasing demand for biodegradable products, they are expanding their assortment.

Jonathan Berry, Tamara Felux and Jim Berry of J. Berry are present at the exhibition with a booth for the first time as they are going to distribute their Hollywood Hibiscus series internationally.
