Spring edition of PLANTARIUM|GROEN-Direkt almost fully booked

The spring edition of PLANTARIUM|GROEN-Direkt is almost sold out! As can be seen on the interactive fair plan, only a few places are still available.


“The past few days the applications kept streaming in and the fair floor rapidly filled up. Our sector is evidently in a positive flow once again, and we’re now investigating whether we can create some extra room so as to be able to offer everyone a place,” says fair manager Marjolein Wieckardt.


With more than 150 exhibitors already and the 5000 sample layers of GROEN-Direkt’s Spring Fair, the spring edition ofPLANTARIUM|GROEN-Direkt will kick off the new garden plant season. After the successful autumn edition, many companies would like to participate in the fair next spring too. The next edition will have the same, greatly appreciated fair layout as the last autumn edition. The interactive fair plan and information on the participants can be viewed at the website. Companies interested in the last available places can register via the website.
