The Mercat will be present at the Salon du Végétal

The Mercat de Flor i Planta Ornamental de Catalunya participates again at the Salon du Végétal, which this year takes place from 20 to 22 June in the city of Nantes in France. We will be present in an information stand located in hall XXL, in the area dedicated to the Production, under the wings of FEPEX (Spanish Federation of Producers Exporters), along with other Catalan companies.

The Mercat will attend this important event in order to attract new customers in France and let them know the commercial services they offer, such as grouped shopping and transportation of a wide range of flowers and plants at a very competitive prices.

The Salon du Végétal release dates and new location this year 2017. After many years when this fair was made in the city of Angers in February, this year it moved to Nantes in late June with the aim of attracting more visitors and encourage businesses, which had gradually decreased.

According to the organisation, “over the years, holding the trade show in February has become more and more challenging: School holiday season and an already well advanced trading season. Visitors surveys and discussions with some exhibitors, buyers and stakesholders have allowed to define a time more appropriated to business. The Salon du Végétal will be hold on 20, 21 and 22 June 2017, a good period for all the categories of buyers and for many reasons:

– For distribution and production, it is after the full season of spring, and this period is fertile for ideas and references and to prepare the next season
– Florists are more available, as the major events have passed by
– For landscapers and town councils, demonstrations outside are a key point
– Plants and new varieties are in full flower
– Prototypes of manufactured products further advanced and thus ready to be unveiled or even ready for market.
– A time (Summer beginning) good for business and conviviality”.

Changing the exhibition city it’s because “the Salon du Végétal fair continues its search for excellence in order to take our place among the greatest events aimed at the flowers & plants, gardening and nature in the cities world. Exhibition in Nantes means “a larger exhibition area, inside and outside, that will allow to present a wider offer and therefore to attract more professional buyers”

Summing up, we hope to return from there with a good new contacts to do business.
