If it's the tomato acreage, the cucumber acreage or the blueberry acreage, in Mexico they're all growing. The horticultural industry has been on the rise and since the availability of resources like water and labour is limited, there's a high demand for horticultural solutions. That's why the organizers of GreenTech decided to expand to Mexico a couple of years ago.
Due to COVID they had to postpone their maiden flight for more than a year, but now that the first edition took place many exhibitors are convinced the show is here to stay, as they were pleased with the high quality organisation and see many opportunities for growth in the Mexican industry. If it's crop or cultivation utilities, greenhouse techniques or installations or technical solutions, the Mexican growers are willing to look into it if it helps them improve their harvest.

Next week we'll have more insights on the Mexican market available for you - but first it's picture time. Made a cool shot that isn't included yet? Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add it to the report.
