Our joint future

When you think of the word 'horticulture', what comes to mind? It is not surprising that you think of words such as 'bush', 'rake' or 'vegetable gardens'. Terms such as 'sustainability', 'liveability' and 'a hopeful future' probably come to mind less quickly. This is completely understandable because the horticultural sector often does not get the stage it deserves. However it is also a real shame because horticulture is not only fascinating but, above all, it's essential for our joint future.

In a world where nature often has to make way for concrete, glass and steel, horticulture is the key to a liveable world. In the eyes of horticulturists, everyone from gardeners to asparagus growers or greenhouse technicians are superheroes. And the Floriade Expo 2022 will give these heroes the stage.

Floriade Expo 2022 in Almere

Once every ten years, all green greats come together during this world horticultural exhibition. Experts from all over the world gather to present green solutions that make our cities more fun, beautiful and sustainable.

Within the theme 'Growing Green Cities', more than 400 national and international participants show their latest green inventions, solutions and applications. From state-of-the-art solar roof tiles to amazing vertical facade gardens and from the best ways to grow tomatoes to the latest pruning techniques. You can see, taste and experience it all at Floriade.

Apart from all the inspiring gadgets and innovations, you can also simply enjoy all the natural splendour on site. You can take a trip through the many blooming gardens, the inspiring arboretum, feast on surprising green dishes or immerse yourself in the varied art and culture programme. There is something for everyone. Children can go on an expedition, parents can go on a tasting and entrepreneurs can exchange their biodegradable cards and lay the foundation for fruitful collaborations.

We believe you will love it here so much that you won't want to leave. Fortunately, Floriade is laying the foundation for the future sustainable Hortus urban district, where you would love to live, so who knows…

Floriade gives horticulture the stage it deserves. Come and enjoy greenery in all its scents and colours and be amazed at what green can do for us.
