The next edition of Vakbeurs GrootGroenPlus, which will take place from October 4-6 in Zundert, is fully booked. Although more space is available thanks to a move to Business Centre Treeport, the trade fair for the green sector is fully booked well in advance. All general areas have also already been rented out to exhibitors. Therefore, the press room, for example, will be built separately. Interest is and remains high; there is a waiting list, and, according to the company, applications are still coming in daily.
The trade fair is ‘very green’ again this year. That is, there are many green participants, complemented by various suppliers and technology participants. The full range of products is represented on the trade fair floor. We also see an increase in foreign participants again. During the Covid period, the number of international participants dipped, but now they have found their way to the exhibition floor again, this year, there are also participants from Poland and Italy, for example.
More than 250 exhibitors
In total, the trade fair now has more than 250 exhibitors, and despite the growing waiting list, it was decided not to enlarge the fair any further. Due to the move, the layout has been completely renewed: different halls, different dimensions, and different heights. The advantage is that each route has its own hall, making it easier to create a closed loop fully filled with exhibitors. All three exhibition routes end at the central restaurant; here, visitors can catch their breath and enjoy a special coffee and/or a sandwich.
All exhibitors have now received their stand information, and the trade fair floor plan will soon be posted on the site and in the app (interactive).
The closing date of the fair catalog is August 31, that of the vacancy newspaper is September 26, and for participation in plant inspections, one can still register until September 1. A new feature is that all plant and stand inspections will take place. Thus, participants and visitors attend the inspections live.
The fair app is quadrilingual, free to download, and will continue to be filled in the run-up to the fair. It will also contain the current offerings of the green participants.
Meanwhile, visitor registration has been opened; trade visitors can register for free via the GrootGroenPlus website, and registration via the fair app is also possible. www.grootgroenplus.nl
