BEIJING/GUANGZHOU, China: Hortiflorexpo IPM Beijing and Flower Expo China hosted by China Great Wall International/China Flower Association and the Guangdong Grandeur International Exhibition Group respectively have been rescheduled because of Coronavirus.
Ms. Wang Xinyue and Mr. Wang Shuo of Hortiflor IPM Beijing’s organising committee say that it is with regret that the show, originally scheduled for April 7-9, 2020 has been postponed until next autumn. “We will stay in close contact with government authorities and relevant departments and will announce the show’s new dates as soon as they are available.”
Flower Expo China’s show organiser Mae Law told FCI today that the 12th edition of the Flower Expo China , originally scheduled March 16-18 at the Guangzhou International Sourcing Centre, will now be held on May 11-13 at a different venue: the Guangzhou Poly World Trade Centre Expo.
In 2019, the three-day event in Guangzhou attracted over 300 exhibitors and a record number of more than 33,000 buyers from home and abroad. Visitors of the Guangzhou show are treated to fresh cut flowers, bonsai trees, succulent plants, young plants, packaging material, pots, vases, dried flowers, floristry supplies and garden tools.
For the occasion Ms Law thanks industry professionals worldwide for the heart-warming support. “We are closely monitoring the situation,” Law said, “people have returned to work after an extended Lunar New Year holiday. Please rest assured that we will keep you updated of any changes to the current situation.”
