Updated 17:50, 02-Aug-2019
Talking about the Beijing Horticultural Expo which is taking place in Beijing, what does it mean to Chinese floral industry insiders? Let's find out.
20 years ago, an A1 Class World Horticultural Expo was held in Kunming, China. Two decades later, the Horticultural Expo was held in China again, this time in Beijing. In the past 20 years, China witnessed rapid economic growth and significant improvement in people's wellbeing. Flowers have become part of everyday life. The successful holding of the Horticultural Expo in China will surely have great influence on the development of the horticultural industry in China.
WU FEI, FOUNDER & MANAGER PEKING YOUTH HOSTEL "I think the Horticultural Expo is a good opportunity for people to understand and engage in the industry. This is a large-scale event that enables the public to see all kinds of plants. I think everyone could find something he/she likes at the Expo."
CAO XUE, FOUNDER & MANAGER HUATIANXIAOQI "The Horticultural Expo is the highest-level event in the industry. It could influence the industry in two aspects. First, in terms of gardening and fresh-cut flowers, the Expo could significantly boost the development of the industry. In China, home-grown plants represent a market that is ten times larger than that of fresh-cut flowers. In developed countries like the United States and Japan, it is common for families to have their own gardens or grow plants on their balconies. As our income increases, we will be willing to spend more on activities that help us to better enjoy life, such as reading, going high tea or taking care of plants. Second, the Horticultural Expo is a platform for the popularization of horticultural knowledge. Besides, designers and suppliers from around the world will gather at the Horticultural Expo, which creates good opportunities for people to learn new knowledge."
