Floriade – is an A1 BIE and AIPH accredited International Horticultural Expo held every decade in The Netherlands. This special seventh edition in 2022 will focus fully on the Growing Green Cities and is held in Almere, a short 30 minutes away from the Dutch capital city of Amsterdam. Floriade is expected to host some 2 million guests during its six month opening from April 14th to October 9th 2022.

From July 2020 the expo’s onsite Preview Centre allows guests to have a sneak peak at what is to come, combining a boat ride from the city center with a variety of pavilions as well as a small train tour of the site under construction.

Floriade will imple­ment acces­so​’s cloud-based, ful­ly host­ed acces­so Pass­port tick­et­ing suite across its road to opening in 2022. The solu­tion will allow Floriade to seam­less­ly man­age trans­ac­tions, while build­ing cus­tomer loy­al­ty through­out the pur­chase process with the use of intu­itive mem­ber­ship tools. The tick­et­ing suite also pro­vides easy up-sell, cross-sell and quick-sell prompts to dri­ve rev­enue while help­ing guests plan their ide­al trip. Addi­tion­al­ly, acces­so​’s ticket distribution platform will allow Floriade to dri­ve tick­et sales and boost rev­enue by tap­ping into an ever-grow­ing net­work of glob­al online dis­trib­u­tors, pro­vid­ing access to mil­lions of poten­tial cus­tomers — all with a sin­gle API connection.
