Registration is now open for ornamental exhibitors at the International Floralies – Nantes on 8-19 May 2019 in Nantes (France). The program is expected to be rich in colour, scenery and botanical discoveries.
The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) approved the show as a ‘C Category International Horticultural Show’ during its meeting in Melbourne on 21st March, and actively encouraged participation in the event.
Floralies Nantes is a major event in Western France, and takes place every five years in the La Beaujoire exhibition park. After the great success of ‘Art Bouquets’ in 2014, the ornamental design of the 2019 edition will have ‘Fleurs à vivre’ (flowers to live by) theme.
Inspired by a quote from Montaigne: ‘If life is nothing more than a passage, let’s at least sow flowers along it’, the theme will be divided into seven ambiances presented throughout the park’s indoor and outdoor areas, giving the visitor a sense scenery, enchantment and wonder.
Registration is now open for all plant aficionados, professionals and amateurs, willing to take part in a great floral, botanical and human adventure. Potential ornamental exhibitors are invited to visit the Floralies Committee’s extranet (www.comite-des-floralies.com/eng/extranet), to submit an application, find a partner to combine skills and team up with, or get more information. Exhibition space, technical support and basic materials are provided free of any charge, just like the dedicated communication space and the contribution to accommodation expenses. Applications should be submitted before 30 June 2018.
Commenting on the approval by AIPH, the Secretary General of AIPH, Tim Briercliffe said: “AIPH members were pleased to grant approval for Floralies Nantes, which has a long history of delivering an outstanding event that attracts many people. As the Show is now welcoming participants from all over the world we hope that many cities, countries, businesses and organisations will take advantage of this special opportunity.”
