AIPH announces International Horticultural Expo Conference in Dubai

For the first time since before the pandemic, on 7 March 2022, organizers from forthcoming AIPH approved International Horticultural Expos will be presenting their progress reports in person at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dubai, UAE.

International Horticultural Expos are beautiful events that showcase nature, are enjoyed by millions of visitors, and leave environmentally positive legacies for the host city's residents. The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) has a mandate agreed by the 1928 Paris Convention and subsequent protocols. Since 1960, International Horticultural Expos have been approved and regulated by AIPH – International Association of Horticultural Producers. A gallery of these Expos can be viewed online.  

This Expo Conference in Dubai is an excellent opportunity to learn more about upcoming International Horticultural Expos as well as hosting or being involved with an International Horticultural Expo and network with Expo organizers, city representatives interested in hosting an expo, urban developers, AIPH members, NGOs, international city and environmental organizations and suppliers to major events.

Millions are spent developing these international spectacles that can stimulate the development of entire cities and transform the international reputation of hosting regions. Each Exhibition attracts many international participants and millions of visitors and lasts up to six months, with sites ranging from the smallest of 25 hectares to the largest of 500 hectares or more. Every Expo is carefully regulated, steered, and monitored by AIPH.
