(ZVG) Since 2008, the latest plant innovations have been exhibited and honoured in the Innovation Showcase at IPM ESSEN. All the plant exhibitors at IPM ESSEN will have the possibility of presenting their innovations in Hall 1A.
"Innovations" in the terms of the exhibition regulations will include new breeds and new wild and growth forms which have not been known until now and have not been exhibited at any other German fair. The exhibited plants will be assessed by a knowledgeable jury on the day before the opening. The most attractive plant in each category from the ranges of flowering and green house plants, spring-flowering plants, bedding and balcony plants, cut flowers, perennial plants, woody plants as well as tub plants will be chosen as the "IPM Innovation 2014" and will be presented in Hall 1A on the opening day.
For the first time, Arbeitskreis Neue Zierpflanzen ("Working Party on New Ornamental Plants") will be represented within the framework of the Innovation Showcase and will present the results of its current activities. Moreover, a survey of the visitors should serve to estimate the value of the innovations.
Throughout the period of the fair, the visitors will be able to obtain information about these innovations. The IPM Innovation Showcase will be jointly staged by Zentralverband Gartenbau e.V. (ZVG - "Central Horticultural Association") and Messe Essen GmbH.
The closing date for registrations for the IPM Innovation Showcase will be December 16, 2013. In the near future, the registration for participation in the Innovation Showcase will be available in the Internet at www.g-net.de.
