World Trade Day: Flourishing Export Strategies

On May 17, the joint World Trade Centers in the Netherlands, NLinBusiness and Horizon Flevoland organize World Trade Day in Almere to which we cordially invite you.   

 In the morning we offer an interesting program with the theme export strategies. The Netherlands is the second largest exporter of food and agricultural products in the world. What makes us so successful and what can exporting companies in the Netherlands learn from this?   

 After lunch we visit the largest garden and agricultural event in the world: the Floriade. Every 10 years this event is held. This time Almere is the host. We conclude the afternoon with a networking reception at the Floriade.   

The morning program consists of two panel discussions led by Simone Trier and includes the story of HZPC, how they have become one of the world's largest seed potato suppliers. Also, how they continuously develop new varieties to meet local requirements. Why Kenlog is internationally successful as a consultancy firm in the field of horticulture with their principles of people, food & planet and why Kind Technologies believes that robotics, computer vision, data & AI will make a major contribution to the global food demand. Also, Plantlab has a special solution to meet the demand for food through their concept of custom-built indoor farms the so-called 'Plant Production Units' (PPUs).
