GreenTech, the global meeting place for all professionals involved in horticulture technology, will be held in Amsterdam’s RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre from June 14-16. With over 350 international exhibitors including all the market leaders, GreenTech focuses on the early stages of the horticulture chain and production issues relevant to growers of flowers and vegetables.
