Nursery & Plant Exhibitors
For well over a decade, CHA has organised a UK Group Stand in Hall 10 supported by UK Trade & Investment. Hall 10 is one of the main nursery stock halls and is ideal for companies selling trees, shrubs and herbaceous plant. The UK stand is also close to the access leading to the upper and lower retail and floristry halls.
Technology and Horticultural Suppliers
At the request of a growing number of British companies from the supplies and technology sector wishing to exhibit at IPM, we have established a strong presence in Hall 3. This is the speciliast 'Technology Hall' for exhibitors from the horticultural supplies sector, substrates, glasshouses etc. We plan to continue and expand this satellite stand in future editions.
CHA has applied for UKTI funding to be available for eligible British exhibitors - details are available on request.
