Who will be the next Green Entrepreneur?

Over 200 international breeders, producers, distributors and retailers will join the second edition of The Green Inspiration Event on Thursday 16th June. The event for the pot & bedding plant industry will this year be held at the Exhibition and Convention Centre RAI in Amsterdam. Highlights are the announcement of the Green Entrepreneur of the Year and the winner of the FleuroStar Award.

The evening will commence with a walking drinks reception and dinner in the Grand Café at RAI Amsterdam. The official part of the programme will take place at another part of the convention centre. Guest of the event will be treated to an evening of highlights. Following on from 2015 when Frands Jepsen (Quality Queen) was elected Green Entrepreneur of the Year, the election of the most inspiring entrepreneur will this year be in the hands of the audience. Guests will be able to vote their personal favourite from a short-list of three nominated companies. The nominees of 2016 will be announced soon.

FleuroStar Award

The Green Entrepreneur of the Year ceremony will be followed by announcing the winner of the new FleuroStar Award. Which variety will succeed to Selecta One's highly successful Petunia NightSky? Five top introductions of the season are competing during the week of the FlowerTrails to become the new Winner with the highest ‘wow factor'. Main guest speaker of the Green Inspiration Event will be David van Wingerden, COO of Green Circle (Cleveland, Ohio, USA). He will also be participating in the forum discussion with the audience on a number of statements focused on relevant market developments for the sector. The forum will also include representatives of breeders, retail and trade.
