International joint booths at IPM ESSEN

IPM ESSEN 2016, taking place January 26-29, will feature various international joint booths. Below you'll find a selection of some of them.

The Chinese joint booth is organised by China Great Wall Exhibition. Compared to 2015, visitors can expect far more offerings: the size has doubled and exhibitors have significantly more opportunities to present their extensive range of plants, seeds, flower pots and much more. For participants in the joint Chinese booth, the world's leading trade fair for horticulture is a good opportunity to have discussions with customers, develop business contacts and deepen long-term cooperation.

Costa Rica
Ornamental plants such as dragon trees, aglaonema, palms, ferns, crotons and ficus will be at the centre in a 50-square-metre booth with ten companies. For exhibitors, the fair is an important platform to attract new customers and maintain existing business contacts. The exhibition will take place under the “esencial Costa Rica” brand and offer a glimpse into the country’s exotic and varied plants. Costa Rica has great natural biodiversity and offers a lot of high-quality exotic products.

United Kingdom
The British joint exhibition offers more exhibitors, new varieties and innovative technologies. Under the umbrella of the Commercial Horticultural Association, companies are presenting their products at a total of three booths. Among them are many first-time exhibitors who are bringing new products to Essen – including new carnation varieties, clematis for small gardens and planting bags for tree breeders. They are also presenting solutions for greenhouse construction, heating and air circulation. As the partner country of the International Horticulture Forum, British experts will also discuss challenges and opportunities in the horticulture industry in the United Kingdom.

Guatemalan exhibitors are keeping their joint booth very close to nature and emphasising the beauty of their plants and flowers. Thanks to varied and special climates, the country grows about 500 plant species and around 3,000 native plants as well as many others, which are exported in a variety of forms. Ten or so companies from all over Guatemala are presenting tropical plants, palms, bromeliads, cut flowers and cut foliage among other things. New products include succulents and large beaucarnea.

Flora Holland and BIZZ Holland are organising both Dutch booths. Under the auspices of BIZZ Holland, companies from Boskoop, Opheusden, Venlo and Zundert among others are exhibiting the latest decorative hedges, water plants and street trees. The plants submitted for the Show Your Colours Award 2016, which is organised by BIZZ Holland together with Messe Essen, are prominently displayed at the entrance of Hall 12 and the BIZZ Holland booth.

The Spanish joint booth occupies over 1,100 square metres, where 34 member companies are exhibiting their products under the umbrella of the FEPEX (Spanish Federation of Associations of Exporting Producers of Fruits, Vegetables, Flowers and Plants). They come from the regions of Valencia, Catalonia, Galicia, Andalusia and the Canary Islands and specialise in the production and export of ornamental plants. All exhibitors use a system for ensuring the quality production of flowers and ornamental plants – including PPQS (Plant Production Quality System).
