Turkey to host 2016 International Horticultural Expo

Tickets are now on sale for the 2016 International Horticultural Expo held April 23 through Oct. 30 in Antalya, Turkey.

With the support of the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) and the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE), Expo 2016 Antalya is the first A1 category international horticultural exhibition to be held in Turkey.

Tim Briercliffe, AIPH Secretary General, says, “This will be a wonderful opportunity for both the horticultural industry and the people to come together to witness and celebrate the benefits of horticulture and its very real impact on the future. It is anticipated that eight million local and foreign visits will be made to Expo 2016 Antalya’s 112-hectare exhibition site over its six-month duration. We are very proud to approve this expo.”

Expo 2016 will include conferences, exhibitions, symposiums, as well as national and international congresses with the goal of becoming a nexus for cultural, educational and artistic interaction.

Participant countries will introduce their garden cultures, while national and international exhibitors will display best practices and smart solutions in agricultural techniques, organic farming, biotechnology, sustainability and responses to environmental problems. A series of events are also planned throughout the expo to enable children to develop awareness and responsibility for the natural environment.
