Spring Fair 2020 and plans for the future

On 22 and 23 January, the third edition of the GrootGroenPlus (GGP) Spring Fair was hosted. This edition would determine if this green fair in Zundert would be continued or not.

The first day of the fair started off great: 121 buyers found their way to Zundert. During the evening, we welcomed another 60 people for lectures about for example Brexit and doing business in China. For many participants, that day alone made their participation profitable.

On the second day, another 62 buyers visited the fair. Visitors of the green fair in Zundert came from The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, England, Japan, Poland, and South Korea, among others.


Cooperation

In the spring, GrootGroenPlus cooperates with three other trade fairs in the southern part of the Netherlands: Groenbeurs Haaren, Groenbeurs Brabant (in Best), and TreeVention (in Venlo). For more information, please check www.springfairs.eu. Last year, we noticed that approximately 60 per cent of the visitors of GGP’s spring fair also visit the trade fairs in Haaren and Best. This year’s data still needs to be analysed. However, we do know for sure that the cooperation will be intensified next year. This combination of trade fairs offers buyers a unique advantage: the possibility to visit multiple purchase fairs in just a short period of time, and being able to buy everything, even when there are a lot of shortages.


Growth

The GGP Spring Fair of 2020 might - according to the data - not be big enough yet, but it has become important enough for the area to host it for at least another two years. However, we will work on attracting more participants, especially from the region, and more (international) visitors. In order to do that, a clear distinction will be made between the spring and fall fairs of GGP. This will allow for better promotion and recruitment, by creating a separate website. We’ve already registered the applicable domains: www.voorjaarsbeurszundert.nl and www.groenbeurszundert.nl.

In 2021, the green fairs of Zundert, Haaren, and Brabant will take place on 20 and 21 January, and TreeVention on 24 and 25 January.
