During the Summer of Innovation Expo, business visitors are welcome to see and experience ultramodern developments in horticulture. Various startups and companies present their innovations especially on the Expo. You can also visit the permanent stands, the research center and the newly opened All Climate Greenhouse.

The future of horticulture

During the tour, visitors can see innovations that are not normally exhibited in our knowledge and expertise center, such as drones to eliminate moths, special growth spots for cuttings, and the latest sensors and cameras that help the cultivation specialis. The Summer of Innovation Expo is a unique opportunity to experience the future of horticulture.

Permanent exhibition also open

More than a hundred companies permanently display their innovations in the World Horti Center. These companies present themselves to visitors on two exhibition floors all year round. Normally these stands can only be visited under supervision. During the Summer of Innovation Expo these floors are part of the route, where you can dive into a VR world, discover the latest data software for greenhouses and see countless products. You can also walk around the All Climate Greenhouse - most futuristic greenhouse in the world - and take a look at the high-tech water space at World Horti Center.
