IFTEX 2024 Comes up and myThursd Will Be There as Well

Published: May 3, 2024

An occasion whose benefits are infinite, not just for the flower industry but also for individual attendees.

If you’re a flower or plant breeder, grower, logistics provider, florist, floral designer, influencer, or any other integral part of the vast floral ecosystem, then your presence at the 2024 International Floriculture Trade Expo (IFTEX) – which runs from June 4-6 in Nairobi – is an absolute must. This floral fair has established itself as a key event in the international floriculture calendar, attracting industry players, flower enthusiasts, and even curious attendees. It is an event through which connections are forged, knowledge is shared, and the future of the floral industry is shaped.

This year’s event is hardly different from any other previous ones, and in attending it, not only will you have the opportunity to mingle and network with the very best in the global flower trade, but you’ll also be precisely at the center of the action and dynamics of this floral event. You’ll have the unique opportunity to dive right into the very heart of new developments, innovations, and trends that shape the flower world. And one of those innovations is myThursd, the new kid on the block whose influence right now is more than palpable. myThursd is a part of the Thursd eco-system, you can read about the two in this article: ‘Thursd and myThursd, What is the Difference?’

IFTEX, according to the event’s coordinator, Dick van Raamsdonk, the CEO of HPP Exhibitions, a renowned event organizer known for hosting exhibitions that focus on horticulture and flowers, offers a platform for highlighting Kenya’s role as a key player in the global flower industry. The occasion’s benefits are infinite, not just for the flower industry but also for individual attendees.

And thus, as the flower world gathers in Nairobi for this year’s floral fair, the team of myThursd will also be there; making its debut in the global flower showcase, where the new platform is more than ready to demonstrate its power and the innumerable opportunities it presents. 

Even though quite a significant number of people already know about the platform, IFTEX is expected to present a superior stage where attendees will have the chance to explore the myThursd ecosystem and what the platform is all about, discover the latest trends and products, and forge vital connections that can transform their flower businesses.
