On the occasion of the opening ceremony of the 35th world's leading fair for horticulture IPM ESSEN from January 24 to 27, 2017, Messe Essen and INDEGA presented the INDEGA IPM Innovation Award to the 2SaveEnergy Consortium for the 2SaveEnergy greenhouse system.
Grow Your Own – plant your own herb garden. Already on the day before the fair, the trend scout Romeo Sommers presented the current outdoor trend towards cultivating plants yourself within the framework of a press event.
The Central Horticultural Association (ZVG) (www.g-net.de), ideal sponsor of IPM ESSEN, as well as the co-organiser, the North Rhine-Westphalia State Horticultural Association (www.gartenbaunrw.de), will present their comprehensive spectrum of services in the Horticulture Info Centre in the Green City in Hall 1A.
For decision takers from garden centres, market gardens with retail operations and the specialised retail trade, IPM ESSEN 2017 will open up unique access to the entire green range and to shop fitting.
The "green associations" and the Messe Essen implement their activities in the canvassing of the up-and-coming generation at the International Plant Fair in Essen.
At the world's leading fair for horticulture, floral inspirations, fresh ideas and innovative designing techniques will await florists and decision takers from the flowery retail trade.
Always maintain an overview thanks to the IPM ESSEN app – with the interactive fair planner, an indispensable tool for the visit to the fair and for the planning is available to the visitor in advance.
At IPM ESSEN, horticulture will find not only innovative technology, soils and substrates for efficient production but also the unique possibilities of establishing important contacts to market-leading plant breeders from all continents as well as marketing organisations and placing orders centrally in one place.
The participants should revive and reconsider "old-fashioned" flowers, "outdated" plants and "obsolete" accessories.
