Tickets are now available for the International Association of Horticultural Producer (AIPH)’s 75th Annual Congress, which will be held from September 17-21, 2023, in Suncheon, Republic of Korea. Footprinting, sustainability, and insights into the horticultural industry in the Republic of Korea are on the agenda.

On Monday, September 18, organizers of forthcoming AIPH-approved Expos will share updates on their progress at the International Expo Conference. Delegates will have the chance to explore the 2023 Suncheonman International Garden Expo in the afternoon on a VIP tour. The park site spans an impressive 193 hectares and encompasses three locations: the Suncheon Bay Wetlands, Suncheon Bay National Garden, and downtown Suncheon.

The Horticultural Industry Conference takes place on 19 September and will welcome key speakers from the Republic of Korea to present details of the country’s horticulture industry. In the afternoon, footprinting and sustainability in the industry will take the spotlight. Speakers from around the world will be joining to present on the latest innovations, such as the FloriPEFCR – the EU’s Environmental Footprinting Standard for Ornamental Horticulture.

On 20 September, the Green City conference will present how the industry contributes to projects and programs that use the power of plants to create healthy, liveable, and resilient green cities.
