The 21st Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai, managed by Shanghai Intex Exhibition Co.,Ltd, will be held from April 20-22, 2019 at Shanghai New International Expo Center (Hall W2-W5) with a 50,000 sqm show scale.
In recent years, people’s demands for life quality have been increasingly raised. “Green Life” is no longer just a slogan but a common development of society. Based on Chinese flowers and horticultural consumption, it has changed from group consumption to mass consumption, from festival/stage consumption to daily and annual consumption. The consumption pattern is more personalized and diversified. Moreover, the consumption range has also been expanded from urban cities to rural areas. Although regions such as Yunnan, Shandong, and Guangdong are the main producing base of flowers, pot plants and seedlings, China still needs much more imported varieties and high-quality products to meet the needs of new consumption.
For both major brands and small business to release new products in China, attending Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai is a must. The 21st show will be launched in Shanghai New International Exhibition Center from 20-22 April 2019. The show will bring the latest trends and technologies of flowers, horticultural and the garden industry to the world again.

Share new trends of industry at fringe programs
