Usually, during WK 9, Selecta cut flowers opened their doors to customers to present new varieties and technical updates, but everything changed with this challenging year. That’s why they decided to create new alternatives that allow them to connect with their customers.
“It´s been a challenging year to all of the active members in the industry, but as breeders we have a responsibility with our customers to supply innovation, bringing new varieties into the market for them to grow… we had to find a virtual solution that allow us to continue with our open house as it is the place to meet and discover the most striking novelties, see tomorrow’s principal market and consumer trends. On the bright side, this solution will allow us to show our introductions and reach customers in others locations around the world.” Daniela Navarro, Selecta cut flowers Marketing manager

But we came with a suitable alternative for our customers to see our newest genetic innovations and technical trailing results: Selecta Chrysanthemum Virtual Tour, allowing the viewer to experience the latest introductions and highlights of the assortment as if they were presented to them in a real greenhouse, with videos that go directly from the ground up to the flower; with closeups that allow them to detail the flower shape, foliage quality and growing conditions.” Daniela Navarro, Selecta cut flowers Marketing manager
