Joint Effort Leads to Great Success!
Over the past two years, the preparations for GrootGroenPlus 2021 were in full swing. The digital edition of 2020 provided an experience which helped create this year’s hybrid event.
From 6th-8th October, the vision became reality: the 31st edition of trade fair GrootGroenPlus, combined with a digital program and very expansive participant profiles. This included a search engine of the current stock of all participants which will remain active for a few more weeks.
