3D greenhouses preview at GreenTech

Seeing, smelling and tasting flowers and vegetables at the show.

The brand-new GreenTech Breeders Pavilion offers a unique opportunity to see the newest varieties of flowers and vegetables side by side. The Pavilion is located in an actual greenhouse on the show floor, covering no less than 300 square meters.  In cooperation with 7 participants of the Flower Trials and Vegetable Tours, visitors of the show enjoy a preview of the greenhouses of breeders in the country using 3D and virtual reality technology.

Visitors can literally see, smell and taste the newest varieties. A chef transfers the ingredients into appetizers that tickle the taste buds and virtual reality and 3D glasses take you into the greenhouses. Afterwards booking a tour to the breeders of interest completes the experience, just step into the bus at GreenTech and visit  the greenhouses of the breeders. Tours can be booked online upon registering as a visitor of GreenTech or via Tour booking
