TSW Fair jubilee

TSW Fair jubilee

Fruit and Vegetable Industry Fair is one of the largest specialized garden exhibitions in Central and Eastern Europe and for 10th time will take place in January 2020. Throughout the years TSW had attracted tens of thousands visitors and hosts several hundred exhibitors from in and out of the country every year. From the very beginning TSW’s role was to exchange views and experiences which is fullfilling succesfully as it allows what is the most important thing in business — direct contact between exhibitors and clients. There is a reason why TSW is called a fair of fruitful meetings. For years TSW has been effectively meeting market’s demands. We have the pleasure of organizing fair that hosts exhibitors not only from our country but also increasingly larger number of exhibitors from European and world market. Moreover, the fair is gaining popularity among visitors from around the world — as stated by TSW director, Jacek Kłudka.

Fruit and Vegetable Industy fair is not only a place of strictly business meetings. An integral part of TSW is increasing the knowledge of domestic producers thanks to various lectures, panel discussions, and conferences. During two days of TSW there are about sixty this type of events which are popular among exhibitors and visitors. Large amount of subjects and speakers — both theorists and practitioners in the field of growing fruit and vegetables: economy, machinery, chemistry and everything involving these subjects allows everyone to find something inspiring.
Thousands of people every year are choosing to watch the conferences directly at the fair but this is not the only way to enjoy them as they are also available online. We own innovative technologies that allow us to stream everything that is going on stage thus the knowledge can reach many people who could now attend the fair.
It is quite a logistical challenge but it works without fail — as says TSW IT department manager, Tomasz Viscardi.

Attending TSW is also an opportunity to win industry awards. Prof. Szczepan A. Pieniążek Prize is one of them. This prestige award is awarded to innovative products that are intended for horticultural production. A jury of outstanding personalities from the world of science and practice of the fruit-growing industry will assess mainly three aspects: degree of technological innovation, benefits for horticulture, environment and society and finally project profitability. The winning company not only will receive a statue, but also money prize and the right to place award’s logo on any PR materials.
It is an honor desired by many but only a few can achieve — says Jacek Kłudka. — it is true that this very prestigious award to innovative entrepreneurs is something they to boast about and to be proud of and it can be won only at TSW!
During the jubilee fair, there are many attractions awaiting the exhibitors and the visitors. What kind of attractions? The TSW director stays silent in this subject for now. — We will reveal them gradually, right before the fair building tension like in the best thrillers. I am sure nobody will be disappointed. But in order to experience it personally, both exhibitors and visitors need to hurry up with their applications. So far we have sold third of our exhibition space already. To make the process easier, this year we have launched an online application system.
It is worth to hurry up — said market space sales manager, Agnieszka Świderska — I can already say that we are noting growing interest for participation in the fair from companies outside of Poland. It is a sign that the TSW brand is becoming more widely known and recognized.
January is a relatively calm time in the industry so it is worth to reserve yourself some time and come to Nadarzyn, outside of Warsaw, where in the 23000 square meters space you can visit several hundreds of exhibitors from Poland and all over the world. As participants say — it is the place for concrete conversation. It is a fair of fruitfull meetings after all.
