During the Green Retail Days from August 24 to September 18, 2020 customers get the possibility to view new collections, network with EFSA members and other retailers and get information on latest trends.
“The cancellation of this year’s spoga+gafa and other trade shows has been a challenge to us, especially now as Green business is booming”, says Toine van de Ven, Chairman of EFSA. “To fill the gap, EFSA members join forces to provide their customers a safe, convenient and pleasant way to do business. Of course, we will strictly handle the official requirements in terms of distancing and hygiene at the locations we visit and during our bus tours. We are looking forward to welcome our guests.”
The program of the Green Retail days includes the following activities:
SHOWROOM VISITS à la carte
A tailor-made program of showroom visits to EFSA suppliers of the customer’s choice. Retailers can select a preferred date and choose the companies they want to visit on one or two consecutive days. EFSA will assist to arrange the schedule, lunch, dinner and accommodation.
GREEN RETAIL TOUR
A two-day inspiration tour by bus to leading suppliers and garden centres in the Netherlands. Each Monday and Tuesday participants can join two optional bus tours to different locations, either in the East or South part of the country. EFSA will take care of lunches, dinners and accommodation. Minimum number of participants per bus tour is six.
A series of four webinars focusing on trends and developments in times of COVID-19. The online sessions feature the topics; Online Sales, Consumer Trends, Secure and Hygienic Shopping and Colour & Style Trends.
