23rd World Orchid Conference will be held in Tainan, Taiwan from February 25 – 28, 2024, with judging on the 23rd of February
and the show will be open to the public from February 25 – March 10, 2024. The location for the WOC will
be the ICC Tainan in Tainan, situated next to the high-speed train station. The
main theme of the show is based on the concept of world common good and native
co-creation, and the introduction of international orchid exchanges, which
symbolizes the prospect of Taiwan's orchid industry for the next century.
Tainan is Taiwan’s oldest city and in 2024 will be
celebrating the four-hundred-year anniversary of the founding. As part of the celebrations the very popular
annual lantern festival will be held on land surrounding the ICC from February 24 to March 10, 2024. It is expected to create a multiplier
effect of one plus one greater than two, which will surely attract many people
to come and join in this grand event.
will also be an orchid and trade show at the Taiwan Orchid Technology Park in
Houbi District, about 40 minutes from the ICC Tainan. To attract buyers from all over the world to
participate the exhibition in Taiwan, improve the techniques of production and
marketing strategies, and establish the international reputation of Taiwan's
orchid industry. Looking forward to building an orchid production and export
base that combines low-carbon environmental protection and technological
innovation and implements the goal of promoting the internationalization of
Taiwan's orchid industry marketing.
addition to the magnificent show, all the usual aspects of a good World Orchid
Conference and Show will be prominent in Tainan: an extensive international
conference programme with speakers from around the world, covering not just
science but also all aspects of orchid growing, exploration, and history. There will be international judging, several
social events, banquets, tours to see culture, orchids in the wild and orchid
nurseries. The content is very exciting!
