great green interiors of Holland

26 and 27 september 2024

Visit some of the best award winning projects and listen to presentations about your trade!

The Netherlands is small, and full of cities and offices. Together that makes a perfect foundation for the development of great interior landscaping skills and the possibility to visit a lot of them within two days. Just think about Booking’s headquarters, Jakarta Hotel, Next, Central Park or a visit to Tree specialist Fachjan.

We will stay in the lovely old univercity city of Leiden. Not only full of canals, nice pubs and restaurants, but also with an excellent train connection to Schiphol Airport, and the city centers of Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague and other Dutch cities.

The final reason to go to the Netherlands this year is the possibility to combine your visit with the large Future Green City conference that is held from 23-26 september in Utrecht. This is not relevant to all interior planters, but for some it can be an interesting combination to make.
