Holland Dahlia Event - 2019
Hillegom, ZH Netherlands
A unique, three day long experience full of dahlias galore!
Welcome to the Holland Dahlia Event!
The Dahlia species are a flower with a rich history dating back to 1615. In the nineteenth century dahlias were already being cultivated in the Netherlands. Interestingly enough, the Dahlia is also a flower with a very bright future. Its popularity is increasing again and it is certainly worth turning the spotlight on it. For this reason flower growers, tuber growers and tuber exporters have joined forces to put on a unique event: The Holland Dahlia Event. A unique, three day long experience full of dahlias galore!
Dahlias are not only one of the oldest cultivated tuber flowers, they are also versatile and have many applications. Dahlias can be used for landscaping, in retails, as cut flowers as well as being potted. Breeders are actively developing new varieties, new forms and new colours. Having a good idea of the assortment available is important for exporters and dealers. They need to know which companies can provide the quality you are searching for. This means the right equation can be formulated: The right assortment, the right quantities for the right price.
That is the purpose of the Holland Dahlia Event. It is an event that displays all aspects of dahlias. Companies in the most important production region in the Netherlands – between Leiden and Haarlem – are opening their doors. The event is being held at the same time as the Plantarium, the largest tree nursery trade fair in the Netherlands. This means you can combine visits to two trade fairs in one trip to the Netherlands.
What can you expect to see?
At several of the participating companies, you can see the entire assortment in bloom. The flowers can be found outside, in the fields and inside, in vases. There will be the familiar varieties that are among the most popular dahlias, as well as promising newcomers. The companies are happy to talk to you about the possibilities for collaboration. Along with the stunning flowers, packaging materials, product lines and other options will be in the spotlights. That is why you must not miss the Holland Dahlia Event!
