Tulip Trade Event 2016

Tulip Trade Event 2016The Dutch tulip sector is preparing for an entirely new approach to business promotion: the Tulip Trade Event. Exporters have linked hands to organise the inaugural edition in 2016. This will be a key event in the calendar, which will see all participating companies hold their open days at the same occasion. Among other things, this will allow foreign business partners to efficiently plan a visit to our country. This will lend strength to the export position of the Dutch tulip, which has always been, and remains, the principal product of Dutch bulb growers. “Given the excellent collaboration between the various tulip breeders and exporters, expectations for the first edition in 2016 are enormous”, promise the organizers. Companies behind the initiative include P. Aker, Amsonia, Borst Bloembollen, Haakman Flowerbulbs, Nord Lommerse, P. Nelis, VWS Flowerbulbs and Royal van Zanten.
Inspired by Dutch Lily Days
With the combined open days, the Tulip Trade Event will hitch a ride on the coattails of another successful business platform; the Dutch Lily Days, which will be held June 7 – 10, 2016 for the sixth time. Over the last five years, this event has carved a fixed slot on the international flower bulb calendar. The organizers of the Tulip Trade Event are convinced that the tulip export sector is certain to benefit from a similar initiative. A special website has been dedicated to this event.
