What's in it for me?

The purpose of the study tour is to ensure that the congress is used as a learning opportunity for the younger generation of garden centre managers or directors by:

    •    Ensuring the most is made from each visit during the congress – through additional explanations or information about each business from owners or managers plus having the opportunity to ask questions about what we have seen
    •    Analyzing and discussing each visit to get the most out of it
    •    Learning about cultural differences and how these affect each business
    •    Facilitating discussions – sharing common problems and what is done around the world to resolve these challenges, comparing your own business success and failures
    •    Forming friendships and a peer group to help you resolve any future challenges and discuss opportunities

Special pricing for study tour participants!

Please note the study tour will stay at a youth hostel close to the congress hotel. The study tour registration fee is a lower price as that of the main congress: early bird bookings, before or on May 31st, 2011: 4 people (1 shared room) – 1.000,00 € per person
