JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – With a month to go before the 21st World Orchid Conference [WOC] & Show opens at the Sandton Convention Centre, the Joburg Convention Bureau is working alongside its stakeholders to ensure an extraordinary experience for delegates and showgoers.

A World Orchid Conference & Exhibition is one of the most prestigious and spectacular events on the global calendar for botanists and orchid enthusiasts and a welcome addition to the city’s diverse event line up during Tourism Month.

This coveted international event, the 21st WOC, was bid for by a group of South African orchid enthusiasts and won in partnership with the Joburg Convention Bureau three years ago inSingapore. This is the second time that South Africa is hosting a World Orchid Conference, as the 10th WOC was hosted in Durban in 1981. South Africa is one of only three countries tohave the privilege of hosting a World Orchid Conference more than once.

"Apodado los" Juegos Olímpicos de Orquídeas ", promete ser uno de los eventos botánicos y extravagancias florales más extraordinarios jamás celebrados en Sudáfrica, y animamos al público a asistir", dice Anthony Grohovaz, quien ha liderado la iniciativa de traer el WOC volver a Sudáfrica y ganar la candidatura a Johannesburgo.

“A World Orchid Show is one of the biggest flower shows held anywhere in the world – and comparatively bigger than the famous Chelsea Gardens Show held annually in the UK,” says Pumla Ntsele, Deputy Director of Joburg Tourism’s Convention Bureau. The exhibition is open to the public and tickets can be purchased online from www.woc21.org. Special discounts for school groups, clubs and retirement homes are also available via the website.

Una exhibición de este tamaño requiere tradicionalmente un espacio de exhibición de plantas y flores de más de 10 000 metros cuadrados, aproximadamente dos campos de fútbol, ​​y generalmente asisten 100 000 (cien mil) visitantes locales. Existen muchos beneficios financieros y de marketing para un país que organiza un evento de este tipo, dado que dichos programas suelen tener entre 500 y 1000 inscritos internacionales que, por lo general, permanecen entre 14 y 19 días en total.

Se ha convertido en una tradición para los muchos entusiastas de las orquídeas que se reúnen en este evento cada tres años para aprovechar la oportunidad de realizar recorridos previos y posteriores. Esto tiene un efecto secundario adicional para el país en cuestión, ya que estos solicitantes de registro generalmente son acomodados y gastan una cantidad significativa de dinero durante su estadía. Este evento multifacético de plantas y flores está organizado y organizado sin fines de lucro, no con fines de lucro, con todos los ingresos excedentes para beneficiar la biodiversidad en peligro de extinción de Sudáfrica.

Al mismo tiempo que el World Orchid Conference & Show, los siguientes eventos importantes también se presentarán en el Centro de Convenciones de Sandton:

1.2014 National Cycad Display
2.2014 South African National Biodiversity Institute Display
