Barbados has landed another major international event.

The island has outbid Russia to host the 12th World Flower Show to be staged here from June 18-25, 2017.

Barbados joins countries like the United Kingdom, France, Canada, the United States, New Zealand, South Africa and Japan which have previously hosted the spectacle of floral art that attracts thousands of flower enthusiasts from around the world.

It is held every three years.  

Plans for the show were announced today by Maurice Webster, who is president of both the World Association of Floral Artists and the Barbados Association of Flower Arrangers.

“Our tradition of horticulture is without doubt the basis for excellent performance of flower arrangers in the international arena,” Webster said. (GC)
