The official partner country of the upcoming IPM 2023 is Great Britain. From 24 to 27 January 2023, the United Kingdom will be the focus of the world's leading trade fair for horticulture. Companies from the exhibition sectors of plants, technology and equipment will come to Messe Essen to present themselves and their products "made in UK" on a joint stand. The International Horticultural Forum will provide insights into current developments in the green sector in Great Britain. The Commercial Horticultural Association (CHA) is heading the preparations and activities surrounding the partner country presentation, and is supported by the British Ministry of Foreign Trade and the British Embassy.
The different climate zones enable the island state to produce a wide range of horticultural products. Accordingly, many new plants will be travelling to Essen, the organisers announce. Innovations in the field of technology and equipment will also be presented.
The German-English International Horticultural Forum on 26 January as part of the IPM will also provide an opportunity for international networking: Lectures by British and German experts will shed light on current industry topics. Furthermore, official visits to the joint British stand are planned as part of the partner country presentation. On the first day of the fair, for example, it will be a stop on the opening tour with industry representatives from business and politics, according to Messe Essen. The CHA will also invite a delegation of British gardeners to IPM 2023.
