HortiTech Amsterdam International Trade Exhibition Set to Launch in 2014
HortiTech Amsterdam is a biennial international trade exhibition aimed at the horticultural chain. Amsterdam RAI, AVAG and Fedecom agreed to join forces in launching this horticulture event. The inaugural exhibition will take place June 10-12, 2014, in Amsterdam RAI. The exhibition and intrinsic program is focused on international producers in the food and ornamental horticulture industries and will feature the latest technological possibilities for growing under glass and in the fields. Participation is open to producers and importers of products such as crop protection, breeding and parent materials, potting compost and substrate, greenhouse construction, automation, financing, research and logistics. Innovations will be an important part of the event – virtually, on the exhibition floor and in the vote for the Innovation Award. Three connecting themes will be at the heart of HortiTech: water, energy and biobased. These will revolve around sustainable solutions for water consumption and management, energy generation and opportunities and bio-based applications for horticultural products. In addition to these three fixed themes, HortiTech will focus on changing current topics. Food safety has already been added to the agenda for 2014.
