Event description

Description

Join in this celebration of the magnificent diversity of orchids, by viewing the sensational collection of hundreds of exotic species, by sharing knowledge at a comprehensive 2-day lecture program or by enjoying the captivating social highlights, which provide an ideal opportunity to catch up with old friends over a delicious meal.

There will be thousands of exceptional blooming plants on display and fierce competition in many judging categories will prove very exciting. Many of the unique orchids being showcased feature exotic characteristics and colours not often seen by the public.

Hundreds of strikingly beautiful species and hybrids will be offered for sale, accompanied by a range of complementary products and materials suitable for the orchid hobbyist.

Eminent speakers will share their scientific expertise, international experts will provide insights into the art of orchid growing and culture, and there will be special topics targeting orchid hobbyists. The unique characteristics of orchids from around the world will be a feast for the eyes and mind. One can only wonder why orchids have such unlimited variety and grow in such a wide range of habitats. Some mimic the form and smell of female insects so as to sexually deceive their male counterparts into pollinating the flower, while others are secretive (it took scientists years to find a moth with a tongue long enough to pollinate an orchid that hides nectar 30cm deep).

The glamorous social program includes an Opening Ceremony on Thursday 19th July at the Hawkesbury Indoor Stadium, 16 Stewart St, South Windsor, and a Conference Dinner on Saturday 21st July at the Windsor Function Centre, 2 Dight St, Windsor. Earlybird Conference Registration is now open with attractive discounts until 31 December 2017.
