IGCA Meeting in Beautiful Switzerland

By Othmar Ziswiler

At the end of February we hosted 23 IGCA delegates from 15 different countries in Switzerland. The main focus of the meeting was the Swiss congress in 2016. The group visited several garden centers and they made sure that all preparations are on track. Although the garden centers are still in the slow growing season the Board was very pleased. It was obvious that the centers are of high quality and they will put all the effort into the International Garden Centre congress.

Now the starting signal has been done and everyone will endeavor not only to make the congress a success but also to leave a long lasting impression on every visitor. We will work on every detail and realize great ideas for the biggest possible benefit. It is self explanatory that there will be chocolate, cheese and mountains involved.
