About us

TPN:

TPN is the abbreviation for Tulip Promotion Netherlands. The foundation was established by over 500 tulip growers/breeders. Together they promote the tulips worldwide.

Activities:

TPN promotes the tulip by organizing various promotional annual activities. The biggest event is National Tulip day. On the 3rd Saturday of January the Tulip season traditionally starts. On this day the tulip growers/breeders organize a real tulip garden with over 200.000 tulips, where tulip fans can pick their own bouquet of tulips, on Dam Square in Amsterdam.

The purpose: 

Tulip growers/breeders promote tulips in various ways to stimulate sales of their flower. Tulips give joy and that’s what the growers/breeders love to share!

Activities

Tulips are joy and we are happy to share! In 2012 we organized the first National Tulip day; this was the beginning of a successful and unique event!

Unique Tulip pick garden

National Tulip day is a unique Dutch tulip festival, which traditionally is held on the 3rd Saturday in January. This day marks the start of the season. Annually a real Tulip pick garden is organized in the middle of Amsterdam, right on the Dam where more than 15,000 fans visit the unique garden, to pick their own bunch of tulips.

Tulips & skating

TPN is also a sponsor of sporting skating events. Our tulips gladden the winners, which appear on the podium of the skating arena.
