GreenTech Live & Online has closed with great success.
7,500 horticulture related professionals from 140 countries registered for the in-person show and/or the virtual platform. This resulted in 4,200 visitors from 60 countries at the RAI Amsterdam. The 3 days (September 28–30) were all about reconnecting the industry, knowledge sharing and innovations.
Mariska Dreschler – Director Horticulture – GreenTech: “I have never seen so many happy faces at a show floor because we could finally meet each other again in person. This special edition of GreenTech was a great success in terms of reconnecting, the high quality of speakers, the presence of international market leaders and innovators and also the positive vibe at the show floor. The perfect step up towards GreenTech in 2022!”
Positive feeling among visitors
A few quotes of visitors:
“I am very glad to be here. You really notice people are social animals and that it is much more fun to meet them in person. I see GreenTech as a great start to reconnect with the horticultural industry.”

“It has been very impressive. People are very friendly, willing to interact, and to teach each other. Inspired to improve our business. I found a lot of interesting innovations for my business and I will be back for sure.”
