In the Netherlands, Sion has been organizing the Sion Open for years: an open house with a spectacular dinner at the end. Last week, the first edition took place in Edmonton, Canada, at Bevo Farms. For North American Phalaenopsis growers, the day began with a tour of Bevo Farms’ closed greenhouse and an opportunity to admire the Sion Young Plants’ assortment. In the evening, guests were able to enjoy the “Top Model Show” while enjoying a culinary dinner.
Innovative product location & Phalaenopsis varieties
During the event, North American growers and Sion’s Dutch and Brazilian customers were given extensive opportunities to view the new Phalaenopsis location. During the tour, all the latest production techniques of closed cultivation were shown. For example, the fully enclosed greenhouse without vents which ensures controlled air and moisture quality and excellent hygiene. In addition, many of Sion Young Plants varieties were presented, including Topmodels, New Arrivals, and varieties from the “Breeders in the Spotlight.”
In the evening, the meeting moved to the Royal Hotel, where the exclusive gathering of 70 people received presentations by Sion & Bevo, as well as Kubo, on the future of greenhouse construction. During this meeting, attendees enjoyed an exquisite culinary dinner. Of course, Sion showed that they can go big, and they did. They presented their ‘Top Models’ varieties in an exceptionally unique way: through a real Top Model Show.
