Evaluation remains important
The evaluation of the Dutch Lily Days in 2015 recently took place. Conclusion: lots of visitors were happy and impressed. The 14 participating companies, which simultaneously held their open house, were pleased with the number of visitors.
Quantity and quality of visitors increases
More people have visited the Dutch Lily Days than last year. The participants were particularly positive about the quality of the visit. “You always talk about the quality and quantity of your visitors. Therefore, we are pleased with the Dutch Lily Days on both fronts and across the board”. “The cooperation between all participating companies during the Dutch Lily Days becomes more and more entrenched worldwide”.
In 2015, the Dutch Lily Days celebrated its fifth anniversary. Special attention was given to the visitors who had already announced to be present. Very important for them is to see more blooming Oriental Hybrid Lilies. This is a very important group of lilies. Several Oriental varieties are late blooming and therefor difficult to show these in bloom late May. Therefore, the participants decided to move the Dutch Lily Days to June,”. “In 2015 we will be hosting the Dutch Lily Days during June 2nd and June 5th and we’ll be able to show even more products to our national and international visitors”.
The show had an “Grand Opening” at VWS Export – Import of Flowerbulbs BV. More info about the openings act and what there was to see, take a look on the event info page.
