GARDENIA - The next edition:
28.02 - 02.03. 2014, Poznan
We invite you to participate in the next year's edition of GARDENIA Garden and Landscape Architecture Fair.
GARDENIA is a dynamically developing project, which has over the years become the leading exhibition event of the gardening sector in Poland. The last edition was a record in terms of the number of exhibitors. In 2013 we had over 500 exhibitors and nearly a 20-percent increase in the amount of visitors.
The 2013 GARDENIA exposition was located in six brand new pavilions: 3, 3A, 5 and 6, which occupy the total area of 32 thousand square meters.
The business character of GARDENIA was emphasized with specially prepared events, which were tailored to meet the needs of each and every of the visiting groups.
The Garden Model Center was the novelty of this year’s edition of the GARDENIA Fair. It presented how effectively and professionally a sale space can be organized.
The day prior to the GARDENIA exhibition, February 21st, the Polish Association of Garden Centers (Polskie Stowarzyszenie Centrów Ogrodniczych) trained garden centers on the issue of cost optimization.
A wide offer of Polish and foreign producers and distributors was to be found at the fair exposition. These included over 150 totally new novelties on the Polish market. A meeting with them was an invaluable possibility to develop new business contacts.
FOR ARCHITECTS AND GREENERY KEEPERS
Together with „Zieleń miejska” magazine, we organised the conference of the “Urban Garden Art” cycle. This time, the main theme of the meeting concerned ecological neighborhoods.
Landscape architects, green areas designers and students of this faculty were invited to take part in the fifth edition of the competition titled “GREENERY IN TOWN” organized by OSTO.
The Faculty of Landscape Architecture of Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW) together with Academic Enterprise Incubators (Manufaktura KunSZTU) invited visitors to join the open, interdisciplinary Project Workshops titled “Desert Island”.
Apart from that, architects were welcomed with a rich offer of companies which present small garden architecture, garden furniture and nursery-related material.
For the last few years, the GARDENIA Garden Fair has been drawing attention of still more and more florists, who appreciate FLORISTIC SHOWS. This event was hugely extended this year as three industry representatives have taken over the responsibility of its organization: Polish Floristic School of Małgorzata Bukalska (Polska Szkoła Florystyczna Małgorzaty Bukalskiej), Plastiflora Company as well as Association of Engineers and Garden Technicians SITO (Stowarzyszenie Inżynierów i Techników Ogrodnictwa).
Florists were also awaited by a wide offer of producers and distributors, including above all flowers, decorations and floristic items.
