THE APS16 - a fantastic inaugural event

SONY DSC

The all-new Amsterdam Produce Show and Conference brought the international fresh produce community together in Holland – at the very heart of the global produce industry.

Organised and hosted by the creators of the award-winning New York Produce Show and Conference and London Produce Show and Conference, the Amsterdam event took place on November 2-4, 2016 at the iconic Westergasfabriek. A multitude of industry colleagues came together to celebrate Holland’s position as an innovative world leader in fresh produce and floral production, research and development, science, logistics and trading.

A one-day boutique trade exhibition gave Dutch and international trade exhibitors direct access to a wide range of produce buyers from the retail, foodservice and wholesale sectors. A series of networking events, Holland-focused seminars and chef demonstrations with some of the country’s top culinary minds ran around and alongside the exhibition.

The APS was opened by the Dutch Minister of Agriculture, Martijn van Dam. He went on to unveil the government’s efforts to work with the industry and other partners on improving the consumption of vegetables and fruits in a panel discussion on the main seminar stage on November 3, 2016.

The Amsterdam Produce Show and Conference gave every participant the opportunity to meet, share and learn, adding personal and professional value to their business and careers.
