AIPH ensure Expos are successful through a defined approval and monitoring process and through regulating the number of permitted Expos. For an overview of available dates take a look at the Bidding Calendar.
Through our Committee for Exhibitions, we ensure that approved exhibitions benefit growers and visitors alike by inspiring greater appreciation of ornamental plants. Drawing on the experience acquired over generations, we provide organisers with expert guidance to create world-class spectacles that live long in the memory.
The process and timescales for making an application to host an international horticultural exhibition are defined in the AIPH Regulations for each category.
AIPH provides constant support at each stage of the expo planning, preparation, staging and closing. For an overview of the whole expo process please refer to the Organiser’s Guide for International Horticultural Exhibitions.
The A1/B Expo timeline follows the following scheme illustrated below, with the exception of the BIE recognition for B category Expos. At each of the steps, AIPH provides guidance and support.
