Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Salon du Végétal is the great showcase for French farmers, florists and horticulturists as the sheer demand and popularity of French plants has skyrocketed in the years following the pandemic and now the war in the Ukraine. France has found itself a desirable producer as the French breeds and varietal characteristics have become quite desired by the country’s neighbours to the north and east. Naturally, the trade fair attracts large-scale trade structures like Floréac, Royal FloraHolland, Royal Lemkes and Landgard, who are looking to make major purchases. 

Buyers are mostly interested in perennials, plants for vegetable gardens, nursery plants and certain cut flowers like anemones and peonies. Organisers have made sure to bring quality sales leads to exhibitors and secure foreign delegations of buyers, which have been curated carefully to embody a very large part of the European trade in plants and flowers. Delegations are only one type of visitor at the Salon du Végétal. Here are all visitor groups: 

  • DISTRIBUTION: Specialist distribution, large retail, large food retail, large DIY retail, e-commerce, floristry, direct sales
  • ENTHUSIASTS: Informed plant-buyers, gardeners’ associations, influencers
  • INDUSTRY: Buyers of plant materials
  • PRIVATE PLAYERS: Designers, landscapers, town planners, developers, planners
  • LOCAL & PUBLIC AUTHORITIES: Decision-makers, operators, project leaders
