With more than 125 Kenyan and international exhibiting companies and a strong growing number of registered international flower buyers, the event will be the right place for growers and buyers to meet and boost business. IFTEX, which was otherwise a yearly trade event for the international flower trade industry in Kenya, is now back after years of absence.
Preparations are in full swing but with an industry which is in dire straits, the organisers are hoping that this year’s fair contributes to the recovery and strengthening of the floral industry. Growers and buyers being confronted with strong increased costs from every corner and as well having to deal with various other economical threats, are facing real tough challenges. It will take them a lot of efforts and entrepreneurial courage to overcome all the hurdles that will have to be taken this year and beyond.
Visit www.iftex.org to find all updated information of the event as well as how to register to attend the exhibition. Flower buyers such as (importers, wholesalers, retailers, etc); growers of flowers, plants, vegetables, fruits & herbs are considered qualified attendees.
