Flemish horticulturalists put their weight behind biggest stand at 2022 Floraliën Ghent
Save the date: from 29 April to 8 May
The Floraliën Ghent will be held from Friday, 29 April to Sunday, 8 May 2022 at the ICC, the Floraliën hall and the Kuipke in the Citadelpark of Ghent. It will be a gigantic indoor garden covering 1.5 hectares with a discovery trail that is 1.5 km long. Over 500,000 plants and flowers will be shown at the height of their beauty. The selection will be on display in various halls, with a special focus on the impressive stand of the Flemish horticultural sector, coordinated by AVBS, the professional federation for Flanders’ green industry, in the Floraliën hall.
Inspiration and new trends
At the 2022 Floraliën – after the break that we were forced to take due to COVID – visitors will finally be able to admire the beauty and splendour produced by the Flemish arboriculture, floriculture and cut flower sectors. The 2022 Floraliën are not only a place offering inspiration, but also a showcase for the latest developments with regard to trends, sustainability, research & innovation.
2,000 m2 of flowering beauty
The stand of the Flemish horticultural sector will be prominently present at this edition of the Floraliën. The horticulturalists are organising by far the biggest stand at the Floraliën: around 75 member growers are designing a 2,000 m2 group stand. The stand’s theme is ‘Walk through the Mystic Lamb’, a depiction of the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by the Van Eyck brothers.

- Annual production value: EUR 535 million in 2021 or 9% of the total production value of the agricultural sector, which is EUR 6 billion.
