What is TPN?
TPN is the abbreviation for Tulip Promotion Netherlands. The foundation was established by over 500 tulip growers. They combine, to create the global promotion of the tulip.
What does TPN?
TPN promotes the tulip by organizing various promotional activities annually. The greatest activity is National Tulip day. On the 3rd Saturday of January the Tulip season starts, traditionally. On this day the tulip growers organize a real tulip garden with over 200.00 tulips, were tulip fans can pick their own bunch of tulips, on Dam Square in Amsterdam
Why does TPN do that?
The tulip growers draw tulips in various ways to the attention of consumers and stimulate sales of the tulip. Tulips give joy and that’s what the growers love to share!
