These GTC Days, we’ll surprise you with new plants, unique flowers, special 'treasures,' and trendy accessories! Our buyers and plant hunters have gone the extra mile to curate a refreshing and distinctive assortment. Alongside enticing GTC Deals, you can enjoy fun activities while shopping and find plenty of inspiration.
What can you expect at Europe's largest Green Trade Center?
Our Future Plants
The amazement starts at the entrance where the area is transformed into the Future Lounge. Here, you can immerse yourself in a green oasis and discover Our Future Plants: brand-new plants not yet on the market, but ones we hope to exclusively offer at Waterdrinker later on!
The GTC is full of green and blooming jewels, but Our Treasures really steal the show! These exclusive eye-catchers are highly desired but rare because production has not yet started or they are challenging to propagate. Want something truly special? Choose these collector items!
Renewed novelty square
We innovate to inspire and inspire to innovate - Unique novelties and specialties are what we are known for at Waterdrinker. At our renewed novelty square, you will find the most distinctive market introductions. From newly developed varieties to exclusive batches. On Sunday, November 5th, and Tuesday, November 7th, our plant hunters – Ed and Fons – will be present at 10:00 AM to answer all your questions.
Trends, Concepts, and Must-haves!
During the GTC Days, we introduce the current trend: Festive Fusion. In this, we seek the connection between tradition and innovation. Nostalgia with a modern twist! We also present new concepts and introduce you to the must-haves of the season, including a wide range of Christmas items.
This edition, we collaborate with some top designers. You can admire the work of Florian Seyd (Master Florist & founder of The Wunderkammer) in our Future Lounge, and watch Floral Designer Hanneke Frankema (European Florist Champion 2022) live, creating Christmas arrangements. Curious about the ins and outs of the job? Be sure to visit her on Tuesday, November 7 in the GTC.
