We host our Poinsettia event Magic Stars for five years now. Since 2013 we have been arranging an event series in several European countries.
This year we presented a joined event for our German and Dutch customers on November 11 and 12, 2015 at the premises of our partner Handelskwekerij M. Kregting in the Netherlands close to the German border.
The first day was mainly for German clients, the second was dominated by Dutch customers. On both days the visitors had the possibility to have a tour at the Poinsettia and hydrangea production site of Van Den Berg in nearby Est and listen to a presentation about Climate Solutions by Co. Hoogendoorn. At Kregting’s Louise Labuschagne of Real IPM was speaking about Biopesticides and Robert Wacker (Floramedia) presented some insight about the power of packaging in the sales and communication process.
The response has been very positive due to the high-quality of the show plants and the consulting service of our sales team.
This year the Magic Stars event was premiering in France. Magic Stars & Friends were presented during four days by our partner Challet Young Plants at the company Ottenwaelder in Fréjus. Variety shows of Poinsettia as well as Chrysanthemums and pot carnations had been set up in tents and outside. Jean-Marie Ottenwaelder offered plant tours which led to interesting discussions. A presentation was held to introduce the Selecta Group and our Poinsettia assortment. The guests had also the opportunity to visit the company of cyclamen breeder Morel.
The event in Denmark is the best possibility for growers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland to get a close look on our assortment. We presented a well-arranged assortment in the show greenhouse of our partner Floripartner. In Scandinavia the focus is on varieties that are suited for the production of Mini Poinsettia. Our red novelty Feelings Wonder (SK 117) was able to convince the producers as well as the white variety Princettia Pearl.
