IFTF Expo ready to expand!
Vijfhuizen, May 2, 2011. Exactly six months before the
opening of the second edition of the International Floriculture Trade
Exhibition (IFTF), which will be held in Expo Haarlemmermeer, the 3
current available halls are fully booked. Not counting the 7 small
stands still being available, the organisers are ready to expand,
according to Dick van Raamsdonk, Managing Director of HPP Exhibitions in
With this "Full House", the expectations of the organisers have come
true to a full extent, who predicted last year November that by the end
of April of this year a fourth hall (Phase 2) would be necesary to
accomodate the increased demand for space. Last week the final ok was
given for an extension of a so called temporarily hard wall climate
controlled tent (Hall D) through a license issued by the local
IFTF Expo, which is together with FloraHolland & Horti Fair
founding member of the International HortiWeek, hopes to start as soon
as possible with the execution of the plans. The real starting date will
how ever depend on the moment that sufficient extra exhibition space
will actually be needed. In any case, with the latest developments the
current dimensions of the Expo Hall are not an issue anymore and can
IFTF grow with almost no limitation. Until this moment the current
number of available exhibition meters added up to a total of 16.000
m2's, but with the increased available space it can now grow with 9.000
m2's, to a total of 25.000 m2's.
