We started in March 2017 with the glass construction with a surface of 4.520m2. The glass roof is 12.30 meters high, this is high enough for two floors with shared facilities for ± 300 guests, such as an auditorium, meeting rooms, flexible workstations and a restaurant. Completion was in november 2017. The Dutch Queen Máxima officially opened the World Horti Center, the international knowledge and innovation centre for greenhouse horticulture on March 7 2018.
Westland has a world-leading position in greenhouse horticulture.
365 days a year well-known and leading companies will present their innovative products. They will use these facilities, some have a permanent place. Next to the glass building a school and greenhouses for research are located, which will also lead to innovation.
