Green Forum Opens The Doors

To discuss the most important issues of the nursery industry and to boast (to share achievements) about achievements, to ask questions and to argue about painful issues, to share experience, to learn more about modern technologies, to maintain old working relationships and to establish new business contacts – these are the reasons why green industry professionals need this constructive meeting of like-minded people.

Welcome to the XIII Russian Nursery Stork Association (APPM) Annual Conference, which will be held on the February 4-5, 2020! The theme of this landmark event is “Nursery Industry: The Fields’ Development Features And Problems”.

But the venue has changed: the audience has grown significantly, and the cozy Klyazma Resort Hotel has become small and cramped for such a large company. Therefore, now we are waiting for you in Moscow, in the Izmailovo Concert Hall, where it will be comfortable, spacious and, as always, interesting.

The program of the event will unite various fields and spheres of the green industry activity and will help to find answers to many pressing questions. What steps and actions can make nursery successful business? How to choose the right technique for working with plant material, which of its types should be preferred and why? How to make digital technology work for the benefit of the nursery? Is it possible to help our cities become even greener and more beautiful without losing their face? What are the requirements for the quality and assortment of planting material today and why? How to build relationships with nursery staff? And these are just few of the topics that we are going to discuss with you.

February 3-5, we invite you to the APPM Professional Exhibition.

Green industry companies are demonstrating their achievements, talk about new technologies and sign lucrative contracts. Plus, we have organized for you the Student Forum and the Job Fair: formats that, as the practice of the past years have shown, turned out to be more than in demand. Indeed, the XII APPM 2019 Conference was attended by more than 900 participants: nursery growers, representatives of the garden centers, landscape designers, suppliers of the materials and equipment for the nurseries, landscaping and gardening specialists, and students of specialized universities.
