The Hortiflora Expo kicked off this morning in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Because of Covid, the previous edition of the country’s largest flower fair took place four years ago in 2019, which is obviously a very long time for a country that produces so many flowers. Just under 90 companies are present. The vast majority of the exhibitors are domestic farms, but also several companies from Kenya, as well as Holland, are present, and even some from Saudi Arabia, Israel, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Spain, United Arab Emirates, and India.
The show is a 3-day event and will run till March 10. A report on the show will follow later. Below are some photos that the organization shared with us, and it seems that the show has a busy start.
And also some from Alemayehu Abera of EHPEA, the Ethiopian export association that cooperates with HPP Exhibitions to organize the show.
