First ENA Reception at IPM Essen:

The first ENA Reception will take place on January 29, 2014 within the framework of the world's premier horticultural fair. For this purpose, the European Nurserystock Association (ENA) and Bund deutscher Baumschulen (BdB - "Federation of German Tree Nurseries") are inviting all the representatives of the sector in Europe to the BdB booth in Hall 11. "Tree nurseries are one of the most important exhibition fields at IPM ESSEN since the first event in 1983. We are very appreciative that the first ENA Reception will give its premier at IPM ESSEN. That will highlight the international significance of this fair," is the happy statement made by Egon Galinnis, Managing Director of Messe Essen. The first ENA Reception will help international colleagues to exchange opinions and will be a good opportunity to learn more about the cooperative work of the European tree nursery associations.

"As the voice for the European tree nursery industry, we are very glad to provide a visible sign of togetherness," according to Maurizio Lapponi, President of ENA. Due to the European legislation, ENA is becoming ever more important as the lobby association in the sector. It is intended to emphasise this significance with the first ENA Reception.

Helmut Selders, President of BdB, is also convinced of this: "We need a strong political voice in Europe and the fact that ENA will show its colours amongst the assembled European tree nursery family, it will strengthen the anchoring of the association and the individual member countries. We want the fact that BdB plays host at its booth to be understood as a particular sign that it belongs together with its European colleagues."
