Announcing the above in an interview, Engineer Ali Mohammad Mokhtari, the managing director of TPGSO said: “Seventeen rounds of these exhibitions have been held at Tehran Municipality's Permanent Specialized Exhibition Center between the years 2008 and 2016.”
He also added: “Flower and plant exhibitions are among the most-popular city management programs. In addition to their positive cultural and social impacts, these exhibitions play an influential role in introducing capacities and innovations of producers , exporters and all those active in this thriving industry.”
According to him, the 2008 exhibition had over one million visitors, whereas the growing number of visitors put the figure in 2016 at over two million visitors.
TPGSO managing director said this year’s exhibition was kicked off on Saturday, May 6 and nearly 260 domestic and foreign producers and exporters and production companies showcased their products and services at Tehran Municipality's Permanent Specialized Exhibition Center. The exhibition is open to the public until Friday, May 12 from 10:00 in the morning until 21:00 at night.
Mokhtari went on to say: “Upon a plan by Tehran mayor, every year concurrently with the exhibition a caravan of handmade artworks decorated by colorful flowers and plants tour the city’s main squares and streets. This caravan intends to create a happy atmosphere in the city and bring freshness to the urban districts and areas. Also, it is a chance for the citizens who fail to visit the exhibition to watch the beauty of flowers at their locality, near their residence or office. The caravan is indeed an invitation to the citizens to pay a visit to the exhibition.”
