Our this year’s Magic Stars tours in Holland and Denmark were held on Tuesday 13th of November and were again very successful and interesting events.
In Holland over 100 interested people took part. The visitors were not only Dutch growers, but also growers from Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Russia, Japan and South Korea who made the journey to the Netherlands. The first stop of the tour was the nursery Stals in Ell, who won the 2018 Award of best business in the council of Leudal (prijs beste ondernemer 2018 van de gemeente Leudal). The company Stals grows Poinsettia in 13 cm pots, mostly for the UK-market. After a welcome speech of Maurice Stals, the company Koppert explained biological growing of Poinsettia. Furthermore, the company Intergeen talked about the British market and the possible consequences of the Brexit. The visitors had also the opportunity to see the greenhouses and got a guided tour by Maurice Stals.
At the nursery van Vegchel in Horst the tour continued. The visitors could experience how the company produces our Poinsettia series Christmas Feelings® in 10,5 cm pots and Nico van Vegchel answered questions.
Finally, the nursery Gevers Planten gave the visitors an insight into their automation. The companies Iso Group, TTA and Martin Stolze explained how they implemented their knowledge of automation into the greenhouse of Handelskwekerij Gevers Planten. Alex Gevers talked about all there is to see at the nursery. Of course, the focus was here also on our Magic Stars. The well-known series Christmas Feelings® and Christmas Beauty were shining next to the new varieties like Christmas Break.
Our Magic Stars event in Denmark took place at FloriPartner. Besides an extensive variety show of our Poinsettia assortment we provided our customers with many technical information. The visitors got the chance to learn all there is to know about our Poinsettia series. We offered an interesting programme and inspiring conversations with our team and the FloriPartner employees.
Once again, we made very interesting events possible for our customers. The Magic Stars tour 2018 in Holland and Denmark were a day full of impressive insights in Poinsettia greenhouses, interesting information about growing methods, exchanging experiences and coming together.
