At the opening of the Horti Fair 2012 in Amsterdam RAI, FloraHolland and International Horti Fair announced that in 2013 the Horti Fair will be moved to Aalsmeer and will be organised in combination with the FloraHolland Trade Fair.
While developing the plans, Horti Fair found there were too many financial and operational objections, making a successful organisation of the Horti Fair in 2013 together with the FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer impossible to realise.
After the joint organisation of the Horti Fair and the FloraHolland Trade Fair had come in for positive reactions initially, the fact that part of the fair would be accommodated at an external location met with growing criticism.
All in all, this made the Horti Fair management decide against the idea of the international trade fair taking place at the Flora Holland site in Aalsmeer.
Every attempt will be made to inform the relations and exhibitors about this decision personally.
The management regrets the impossibility of organising the 2013 fair in collaboration with FloraHolland for the reasons mentioned above.
The Horti Fair will be considering how its objective can still be met successfully, which is and will remain unchanged: strengthening and extending the Dutch and international position of the horticultural sector. International Horti Fair BV will no longer organize any Horti Fair anymore.
