Wednesday November 6th the nominees of the Dutch “Horticulture Entrepreneur Award” will be announced during the opening of the trade fairs IFTF & IHTF in Vijfhuizen, Holland. Mrs. J. Vonk-Vedder, chairman of Greenport Aalsmeer, will present all nominees for 2014.
The international trade fairs are growing and expect this year 25.000 trade visitors and over 75 representatives of the national and international trade press.
Dick van Raamsdonk, President of HPP Exhibitions and organizer of IFTF & IHTF Expo’s explains: ‘The cooperation with the Dutch Horticulture Entrepreneur Award fits us very well; We would like to put the Dutch horticulture sector in the spot lights, both nationally and internationally. We are able to give these top entrepreneurs a great platform at the IFTF & IHTF Expo’s. Because of the growth of the trade fairs and the cooperation together with the Dutch Horticulture Entrepreneur Awards we think it is the perfect moment to open officially.’
The opening together with the announcement of the nominees results because of a new corporation between the foundation of the Dutch horticulture entrepreneur awards (Stichting Tuinbouw Ondernemersprijs) and HPP Exhibitions as of October 1, 2013. HPP Exhibitions will take over the partnership of HortiFair.
The Horticulture Entrepreneur Awards are endorsed by: DPA, FloraHolland, Flynth, Interpolis, Ministerie van Economische Zaken/Ministery of Economic Affairs, Rabobank, Vakblad voor de Bloemisterij|Boomkwekerij.
