Such an event has not been repeated since 1988, thirty years ago! Producers of orchids from around the world, as well as orchidophile institutions and associations from all over Europe, will present exceptional scenery. Rare botanical species and the latest creations of hybrid orchids will be offered for sale by producers from Europe, America and Asia.

A congress will be held in parallel with the exhibition. The programming is strong in scientific content but balanced with a series of conferences and seminars that will meet the expectations of the commercial producer and the amateur. The congress is not only an important opportunity for researchers to meet but also an opportunity for scientific results to be widely disseminated to producers, amateurs and bodies responsible for the protection and conservation of natural environments.

A number of activities are proposed to the visitors to the exhibit:

  • Bunch-making, conducted by the SNHF Floral Art division and the Paris florist union
  • Orchid growing workshops for general public
  • Botanical art exhibit
  • Photo contest
  • Workshops for children

Four major French associations, the French Orchid Society (SFO), the French Federation of Orchid Amateurs (FFAO), the Orchid Section of the National Horticultural Society of France (SNHF-O) and France Orchidées gathered for this great event, L’Orchidée in France.
