Plaudits for new-look for Plantarium but concerns about numbers
The newly-re-designed Plantarium trade fair at Boskoop in August attracted 9835 visitors over its four-day run, the organisers reported. Visitors on the traditional consumer day brought the final total to 15,765.
During their tour of the fair, board members were complimented on the new look but also heard criticism about the number of exhibitors and visitors. The board says feedback from participants will be “extremely important” during the follow-up process.
The theme of the 35th edition's show was ‘Stories’. The six Houses of Inspiration told stories centring on a theme, the eight Inspirational Gardens each told a story about a famous person, and the exhibitors told the stories of their companies and products.
Plantarium 2018 will be held from 22 to 25 August in the Plantarium building at the International Trade Centre Boskoop-Hazerswoude. Further information can be found on the website www.plantarium.nl.
