Floriade Expo

Join the world-leading green city expo in 2022

Growing Green Cities

Beginning in the spring of 2022 the seventh International Horticultural Expo, Floriade Expo 2022, will take placed in Almere, Netherlands.
Themed Growing Green Cities, the Expo will focus on the Green City of the future for six months, between April and October 2022. The Floriade site will be a living laboratory with inspired exhibitions from counties, cities, and innovative businesses. With fascinating attractions, art and culture, and extravagant displays of trees, shrubs and flowers, this ground-breaking Expo will give you a glimpse at the self-sustaining cities of tomorrow.

The theme Growing Green Cities is now more significant than ever before. At this moment it is estimated that of the 7 billion inhabitants on earth, 50% live in cities – and, by 2050 this will rise to nearly 70%. Thus, to remain safe, healthy, and thrive, cities have to develop more sustainable, green solutions – solutions which will be on show in Almere at the 2022 Expo.
