The 12th International Flower Trade Show, held biennially in Quito, Ecuador, showcases some of the finest fresh-cut flowers and floral services in the world.

    In September, fresh flower hybridizers, growers, exporters, shippers and other related suppliers converged in Quito, Ecuador, for the 2008 FlorEcuador Agriflor trade show. The event, organized and managed by Expoflores, the Ecuadorian Flower Growers & Exporters Association, and HPP Exhibitions, specialists in trade shows for the floriculture and horticulture industries, was a smashing success according to Dick van Raamsdonk, general manager of HPP Exhibitions Ecuador.
     The massive event, with 16,000 square meters of net exhibition space (approximately 172,000 square feet) showcased the cut flowers and floral services of well over 200 exhibitors from more than 15 countries and attracted some 2,000 qualified buyers from 30 countries. Highlights of the show included tours of local farms, competitions for hybridizers and growers, and flower carnivals and parties.
     The next FlorEcuador Agriflor event will be held Sept. 22-24, 2010, in Quito, Ecuador. For more information about HPP Exhibitions, go to www.hppexhibitions.com. And for more information about Expoflores, visit www.expoflores.com.
