The only trade show in New Zealand dedicated to the horticultural industry opens on Wednesday at the Hawke's Bay A&P showgrounds.

The ICE Expo, which stands for innovation, celebration and education, is being held for the fourth time.

Event manager Lesley Wilson says this year there are more external trade stands this year, including for large machinery.

Ms Wilson says the Hawke's Bay Young Fruitgrower of the Year competition will be held alongside the trade show.
