IGTF, the name of the last year launched Iran Green Trade Fair and especially designed for a quick and strong development of the Iran Horticulture Industry, was held already for the second time last week in the Tehran Exhibition Center. From the 21st to the 23rd of April more than 5,000 trade visitors from mainly Iran came to visit the event, which lasted three days. Exhibitors were very satisfied with the high quality of attendees that came in from many regions of Iran.
The 1st edition was held last year in September when 2 halls were needed to accommodate the 75 exhibitors that participated from many countries such as Turkey, Holland, France, Belgium, Spain, Kenya, Latvia, Germany, Iran, Italy and others. The fair turned out to be a great success and organizers decided to hold the next edition in the first quarter of 2017. This 2nd edition took place last week and reconfirmed the optimism of last year’s outcome of the fair. Especially for technical hardware companies, such as greenhouse builders, machinery companies and other companies supplying products and services directly related to climate controlled production of vegetables, fruits, flowers and plants, this edition proved to be the key event for the Iran Horticulture sector. Among various other reported concrete sales, a large greenhouse project contract was signed. Exhibiting breeders also confirmed that IGTF is becoming an important platform for the Iranian cutflower, potted and bedding plant growers.
The next dates for the 3rd edition of the Iran horti fair IGTF are underway and will be announced before the end of June.
