World Horti Center
The World Horti Center is the international knowledge and innovation center in the world of commercial horticulture. It is located in the Westland region of The Netherlands, just across the largest flower auction in the world. The World Horti Center is a unique building and is home to the Dutch Greenhouse Demo Center (Demokwekerij), a research greenhouse and school & universities specialized in horticulture (a.o. MBO Westland). Just like the previous Greenhouse Demo Center, the World Horti Center provides a permanent exhibition hall for innovative companies in the greenhouse industry. By creating a dynamic atmosphere between education, technological companies and a knowledge center, World Horti Center will soon grow out to become the global center for innovation in commercial greenhouses.
