The Garden Retail Experience in The Netherlands Will Take Place Feb. 7-8

On Feb. 7-8, 2018, The Garden Retail Experience (TREx) will take place in Beursfabriek at Nieuwegein — centrally located in the Netherlands. TREx is a unique annual information and inspiration event for the international garden retail industry. The coming seventh edition promises to be another intriguing and content-filled international event.

The core of the event is the Experience Shop; an innovating garden center with a surface area of nearly 140,000 square feet. More than 150 leading suppliers in the garden industry will showcase their latest collections and concepts there. At TREx, the latest insights and ideas for selling living green, garden and decorative articles are shared, with the aim of providing improved service to the customer and improving sales — from now on. 

From Stores to Stories

The theme of the event is “From Stores to Stories.” There’s a transformation going on in the green industry: from distribution channel for garden products to storytelling spots and platforms for discovery, engagement, experience and interaction.

TREx will be your guide in this evolution to new green store concepts, supplying information, inspiration and ideas to stay ahead! There will be an inspiring programme of lectures, workshops, and Expert Tours (tours conducted by specialists).

What’s New?

The new location is 50 percent larger, easier to reach, modern appearance: TREx is moving to the centrally-located Beursfabriek in Nieuwegein. TREx 2018 will be held on Wednesday the 7th and Thursday the 8th of February; favourable days for retail and international visitors. 

Entrepreneurs, managing directors, department heads, purchasers, visual merchandisers – the core team of the garden centre is welcome. We aim to double the number of visitors.

There will be new exhibitors, plants and flowers, seasonal products and floristry articles. Immediately-applicable ideas, choose from masterclasses and keynote speakers you can’t afford to miss! TREx is the best time investment you can make.
