Rabobank and GrootGroenPlus signed new sponsorship agreement

“Very satisfied with sustainable cooperation”
Trade fair GrootGroenPlus and Rabobank have renewed their sponsorship agreement once again. Both parties are very satisfied with the sustainable cooperation that has turned more into a partnership over the years. They can find each other on topics such as sustainability, which is why they feel it is important to continue the cooperation.
Renewal and innovative
The new sponsorship agreement was renewed on Friday 2 June 2023, in the presence of Corné de Vooght on behalf of Rabobank, and Erik Bastiaensen and David Bömer on behalf of GrootGroenPlus. Another special moment, since Rabobank has been participant of trade fair GrootGroenPlus since day 1, and with this renewal, Rabobank pledges her support up until the 35th edition of the trade fair in 2025.
The sponsor funds that have been pledged in the past few years have been used for for example offering free wifi at the trade fair and the development and content of the GrootGroenPlus app, which is now available in four languages.
Besides continuity, this partnership also always focuses on innovation. The trade fair is known for its continuity, and the same applies to Rabobank. Both parties are continuously moving. A little while ago, Rabobank wrote a vision on the tree nursery industry. Knowledge about this will be shared in preparation of the trade fair; GrootGroenPlus will be the perfect stage for this.
Dynamic and Digital
Of course, the parties also can find each other in this year’s theme: Dynamic and Digital. These two subjects are relevant in the tree nursery industry, but also play an important role in the banking world.
There’s also a challenge between on the one hand being dynamic and embracing digital opportunities, but on the other hand offer a safe, responsible service to our customers. Many of these customers are active in the green industry. That makes a cooperation with the trade fair that focuses on professional green so valuable. Green is the new gold of the future, and it is important to play into that. In the next few months, that subject will be elaborated on.  
Award ceremony
As a main sponsor, the Rabobank will of course play an important role at trade fair GrootGroenPlus. Rabobank will be attending with a completely new stand. On top of that, the bank plays an important role in the award ceremonies of the Jac Lodders and Jan van Dongen awards for best stands. Rabobank will appoint the jury chairman. The jury chairman will give out the awards and will also be mentioned in all messages related to the awards and award ceremonies. These messages are among those best viewed and read. For the first time, this year’s inspection will take place on Wednesday, during the regular opening hours of the trade fair and in attendance of the international press.
