Iberflora, the prestigious international fair known for its mesmerizing showcase of plants, flowers, gardening technology, and DIY garden solutions, is set to make an indelible mark on the global green industry calendar with its 2023 edition. Scheduled for October 3rd through 5th at Feria Valencia, the event's 52nd edition is on pace to shatter records, both in terms of participation and sheer spectacle.
Get Ready for Iberflora 2023
As of five months out, Iberflora has already doubled the number of exhibitors for its 2023 edition, filling nearly 90% of the available exhibition space. Compared to the same period in 2022, growth is at a staggering 114%. This growth is fueled by a surge in both national and international exhibitors, a testament to the fair's burgeoning global appeal. Notably, 16% of confirmed brands are newcomers, poised to debut at Iberflora, further enhancing the diverse array of offerings that have become the event's hallmark.
With exhibitors from countries as diverse as Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Sweden, Iberflora 2023 promises to be a genuinely global affair. Recent data from FEPEX illustrates the impressive export numbers from Spain to these countries, highlighting the significance of these international ties in the green industry.
Máximo Solaz, director of Iberflora:
“We are very satisfied with the figures we are reaching. We are aware that the fair arouses great interest in the industry and that professionals do not want to miss the opportunity to be part of this leading event."
This year's theme, 'Passion for Green', perfectly encapsulates the event's ethos. Iberflora 2023 is not just about showcasing the industry's latest trends, ideas, and suppliers; it's about fostering a deep-rooted love for the natural world. With over 18,400 professional visitors last year, the fair has become a cornerstone for those committed to this mission.

From natural and artificial plants and flowers to garden furniture and decor, Green Contract for Horeca is a one-stop shop for those looking to capitalize on the trend of incorporating natural elements into their spaces.
Networking opportunities abound too. A green-themed restaurant within the event will serve as a fully functional hub for exhibitors and visitors to dine and connect, surrounded by the latest in green decor trends.
