The Trade Fair in Naaldwijk this year was a fair to remember.
The day before the Royal Flora Holland fair, it was announced that the Novel Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2), which was first detected in Wuhan, China on December 31st 2020, also travelled to the Netherlands via Italy. As a result, a number of customers and growers dropped out of this fair.
We chose to be present at the fair and to follow the advice of the RIVM (Dutch Health Institute). Keeping your distance during conversations and by not shaking hands. A strange sensation, but necessary to keep the virus out. The fair was quiet, but we can still look back on a successful fair with good conversations because we now had just a little more time for each other.
After all, happiness and health are what floriculture does for people! Our beautiful sector has good air-purifying plants and flowers that make you happy! So, let’s make it cosy at home together in these uncertain times! Plants give peace, make people satisfied & happy, and as an extra, they provide fresh air. Very convenient in these times that we are forced to stay at home most of the time!
