The last hours of the Fruit Logistica 2020 have started and at 4PM local time the fruits and vegetables at the 3,300 stands will no longer be showing brands, trends and novelties but will just be fruits and vegetables again. For the first time the show dedicated hall 8.1 especially to greenhouse technology.
Focusing on sustainability and bringing the produce industry together, they see the value of the horticultural suppliers for the global fruit and vegetable industry. The exhibitors in hall 8.1 notice this as well: the show proves to be more and more relevant for the horticultural industry year after year. This means that the show might not be the best place for the suppliers of horticultural utilities but it is a good place for technical talks, learning about the possibilities of the industry and investment news.
In general people notice a small decline in visitors which is considered to be a result of the coronavirus outbreak, yet since most people entering the horticultural hall have a high interest in greenhouse techniques most exhibitors do not seem to mind too much. In the end all the clichés are true: it is about quality, not quantity when it comes to visitor numbers.
For now we're showing you a small sneak peek, then we'll be out ourselves as well and start to caption the photos that we will present to you this Monday.
