EILO goes Dutch!

EILO goes Dutch from November 9 till 11

The dark and gloomy days of early November are for anyone involved in horticulture actually a very good time to visit the Netherlands. Around 15.000 horticulturalists are already making the effort to visit the Dutch Tradefair that runs from November 8 till 10. We hope to entice you to be one of the many green visitors during this period, because just parallel to the Tradefair, from November 9 till 11, we organize our annual EILO excursion.

The structure of the programme is the same as on earlier occasions. We start with an informative Thursday afternoon in the Hyatt Hotel on Schiphol Airport. The afternoon ends with dinner in the hotel. The next day starts early and is jam-packed with visits to inspiring projects which in this case are all located in a small area around Amsterdam/Schiphol. We finish the Friday with dinner in the inspiring restaurant De Kas (‘the Greenhouse’, a restaurant that actually is located into a greenhouse). The next day, Saturday you are free to pay a visit to Amsterdam. If you do plan to visit the Tradefair, we advise you to come a day earlier or to use the morning of November 9. A visit of the tradefair is only useful if you take at least half a day. And we assure you that a full day is no luxury.
