Both the Aalsmeer Flower Auction with its inhouse FloraHolland Trade Fair, as well as the International Floriculture Trade Fair (IFTF Expo), which is held in Expo Haarlemmermeer (a state of the art former Floriade 2002 building), are described by the sponsors as “not-to-be-missed” events for the international floriculture industry.
Many exhibiting companies are expecting large numbers of visiting growers and buyers of fresh product from inside and outside the Netherlands.
This so called "Holland Flower Week" will take place during the first week of November in association with the two trade fairs.
For more information, visit www.hollandflowerweek.com for specific dates and opening hours of the participating companies. (This may vary and it is advised to check before you visit.)
A free bus shuttle service will connect the two trade fairs and the companies participating in the open house program. Departures are daily and will run every 20 minutes from the IFTF Expo in Expo Haarlemmermeer. After a stopover at the entrance of the FloraHolland Trade Fair at the Aalsmeer Flower Auction, the shuttles move on to the various open houses.
