This year marks the 20th anniversary of Garden Connect. Over the past years, we have been working closely with more than 300 garden centres to expand their businesses online. As this year's IGCA Congress is taking place in the Netherlands, we thought it would be an excellent opportunity to celebrate this anniversary with you in Amsterdam. 

We would like to invite you to our IGCA 2022 Dinner Cruise on August 27, 2022, in central Amsterdam. 

Join us at 5 pm on the boat for a drink. The boat will depart at 5:30 pm and will take us to hotspots in & around Amsterdam. We're expected to return to the dock at 9.30 pm. During the cruise, we'll serve dinner & drinks.
