Russian trade visitors at GrootGroenPlus 2017
The 27th edition of trade fair GrootGroenPlus, which will take place from 4 - 6 October in Zundert, will also be visited by a group of Russian trade visitors. This group consists of 33 members of the APPM, the Russian Nursery Stock Association. This organisation was founded in 2008 by private nursery owners. At present the Association unites 192 members: 129 nurseries from 36 regions of the Russian Federation and nurseries from Republic of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. The association also has 53 partners. These are mainly organisations connected with the tree nursery market, that are not tree nurseries themselves.
The association focuses on the development of the Russian tree nursery industry, exchange of knowledge and information between tree nurseries, the promotion of industry standards regarding stock material, the development of catalogues and international development. Therefore, they decided to visit trade fair GrootGroenPlus. The Russian delegation will also give a presentation during GGP and after the trade fair, they will visit multiple companies (mostly participants of GGP) during a 4-day period.
