7th New Zealand National Orchid Expo 2013, New Plymouth, 1 November 2013 – 3 November 2013
Where: TSB Stadium, Mason Dr, New Plymouth
Restrictions: All Ages
The Orchid Council of New Zealand will be hosting a National Expo and Conference, showcasing the very best of New Zealand-grown orchids presented in breathtaking floral displays created by orchid society members and individual growers from throughout New Zealand. The educational nature of the event will be highlighted by the attendance of internationally renowned speakers, from the United States and Australia, who will be speaking on many topics relating to the culture and breeding of orchids.
This event is being organised to coincide with the first week of the 2013 Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular, which has previously attracted an attendance of 40-50,000. The unique timing of this event will showcase many orchids not normally seen by the public as most orchid shows are held from August to early October.
TSB Stadium is a well-known venue in Taranaki, and hosts many large national events. It is in a central location adjacent to the New Plymouth Racecourse and has ample parking available. A floor area of almost 2000 square metres will be available for displays, sales and demonstrations and it is expected to hold the lecture programme upstairs in the same venue. Lift available.
