The AIPH objective for international horticultural exhibitions is to promote the products of the horticultural industry to the general public, businesses and governments.
Upholding the very highest standards, we ensure that approved exhibitions benefit growers and visitors alike by inspiring greater appreciation of ornamental plants. Drawing on experience acquired over generations, we provide organisers with expert guidance to create world class spectacles that live long in the memory.

AIPH approved exhibitions are spectacular, public-facing events enjoyed by millions of visitors, and are highly effective at stimulating demand for flowers and plants and for raising the profile and status of the horticulture industry in the country that hosts them.

Critically for the host city, these events draw national and international focus whilst improving the city’s environmental reputation and leaving a green legacy that can be enjoyed for many years into the future.
