IFTEX EXPO IN ITS 4TH EDITION ADS ANOTHER 25% TO ITS SIZE

Nairobi, April 22, 2015. Meeting up to its expectations as was predicted at its initial launch in 2012, IFTEX has grown to one of the biggest and most important flower trade expo’s in the world. Not even 5 years were needed to achieve this position. Once a year cut flower buyers from all over the world meet with flower growers in Nairobi, mainly from Kenya, but more and more also from other African countries like South Africa, Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania and even Rwanda . What is new is that even Colombian growers might step into this African fair and exhibit as well.

Six weeks before already the 4th edition of IFTEX will open its doors, a total of almost 200 companies have signed up as exhibitors, an increase of 10% compared to 2014 and with a growth of almost 25% display space. What started last year as a small extension in a new area of the Oshwal building has now grown into a full size new exhibit Hall. The organizers predict a further growth, since according to them it is likely that the event will evolve into an African and even World Flower Trade Exposition. The importance of African flowers in the world trade of cut flowers is growing strong and steady and therefore it can be expected that the area of flower production will also grow. Especially Kenya and Ethiopia are the two most promising countries in Africa that will be responsible for this growth.

Therefore the organizers are pleased to informthat the buyers attendance outlook of the 4rd edition of IFTEX is looking very promising and reflecting the overall growth of the expo.

 


 

IFTEX 2014 FLOWER TORNADO FROM NAIROBI!

Nairobi, Thursday June 12, Three years after its colourful launch in Nairobi, IFTEX is arguably heading to become one of the leading flower trade shows in the world. The event has marked a new record as the fastest growing event in the history of international flower trade fairs, attracting flower growers from even other continents to exhibit.

"It is like a tornado, the show has a fresh face at every turn, there is no telling where it is heading but what is clear, is its phenomenal growth towards a world class trade exhibition", says Jasper van Dijk, spokesman of the organizers of the fair. A total of 187 exhibitors exhibited last week and 3,231 visitors attended the 3 day show. 54 different countries were counted "at the door", a great achievement in the mission of bringing the world to source flowers in the country where they are grown.

The Best Grower & Best Breeder Quality Competitions were held this year under the supervision of the well known Dutch juror Gerard de Wagt, who was impressed by the quality of flowers that were brought in for this year’s competitions. A jury of 4 persons came to the following results:

IFTEX has given the Kenya flower industry a different face with renewed worldwide attention especially from flower buyers who travelled to Nairobi last week to seek and speak in Kenya with their suppliers. The internationalization of the fair has lead the event to grow into a top Kenya flower brand event, strengthening the country’s position as a leader in global markets while enhancing the image of Kenya as the home from where 40% of the flowers sold in Europe originate.

"IFTEX came at the right time for the Kenya flower industry, since it is now in the process of market consolidation and retention by positioning its flowers as responsibly grown and that picture can only be seen at a show in the country itself", Jane Ngige CEO of the Kenya Flower Council said.
