In a little more than two months the next edition of the international horticulture trade fair “HortiFlora Expo” will be held in the capital of Ethiopia. In the convention center of Addis Ababa, the so called “Millennium Hall”, 10.000 m2’s exhibit space is being prepared for Ethiopia’s show case of the national flower, vegetable and fruit industries.
All-important Ethiopian growers will participate in this trade event. Also a lot of companies, from both inside and outside Ethiopia, that supply and assist the growers in Ethiopia to increase and improve production, will be present though exhibiting and complete the range of products and services that such exhibition should include.
International promotion to attract buyers and investors have been launched on a worldwide scale and it is therefore expected that visitors will attend from all over the world. Ethiopia is a large exporter of flowers, vegetable and fruits already for over a decade and it is therefore an opportunity for international fresh flower and fresh produce traders to be present and meet with the growers of the products that they (in many cases) already buy from them.
The Ethiopian Horticulture Producers & Exporters Association EHPEA is organizing a launch of the exhibition on Friday the 25th in the Addis Ababa Hilton hotel. The trade fair can be attended free of charge for buyers of flowers, vegetables and fruits.
