Chinese flower and horticultural consumption has changed over the years, from consumption for big events to consumption on an individual, daily-life basis. The consumption pattern is more personalized and diversified. Although regions such as Yunnan, Shandong, and Guangdong are the main horticultural producers in China, China still requires more high-quality imported variety to meet the needs of consumption.

From April 20-22, 2019, Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai, the flower and horticulture expo, will be hosted by Shanghai Intex Exhibition at Shanghai New International Expo Center (Hall W2-W5). This will be the 21st edition of the show and will provide 50,000 m2 of floorspace.

Hortiflorexpo IPM is organized by China Flower Association and managed by Shanghai Intex Exhibition and China Great Wall International Exhibition. In 2017, it welcomed close to 800 exhibitors from nearly 30 countries, which were organized into 9 pavilions to exhibit their latest products and ideas.

In 2019, the show will be expanded to 50,000m2, with a larger scale and better-managed overall layout. Exhibits will include flowers, horticulture, floriculture, gardening, outdoor entertainment and relevant supporting products.

A series of fringe programs is again planned for Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai 2019. In 2017, the latest trends were shared during flower arrangement shows and industrial forums such as Holland Day, Chinese Technology and Application Research Conference for New Garden Products and Young Plants, Vertical Greening and Sponge City Forum, Nursery Plant Technology Promotion Conference, Home Gardening Forum, and Micro Bonsai Conference.
