The ninth edition of the AstanaFloraExpo was held April 11 through the 13, at the Krome exhibition Center in Astana, Kazakhstan. The AstanaFloraExpo is the only specialized exhibition held annually in Kazakhstan and throughout Central Asia. More than 80 floral companies from across the globe, including the Royal Flowers Group showcased their products and services during the three-day event. Huge companies from Ecuador, Kazakhstan, France, Russia, Turkey, Germany, Colombia, Holland, Israel, among other countries came together for this special event. One of the highlights was the “Gul Lemi” competition, where expert floral designers and florists from various Kazakstan cities demonstrated their admirable craftsmanship. John van Elstgeest of Flower Circus shared his opinion of the event stating, “In numbers of both exhibitors and visitors, the fair was not particularly big. However, our floral demonstrations could count on lots of attention. I dare to say our shows were the expo’s hotspot, and florists bombed us with questions. Interestingly, many did not know that phalaenopsis is also produced as cut flower, that bouquet fillers come in many varieties, and there is generally a lot to learn about assortment and new varieties.” During the expo, Flower Circus showcased the products of Royal Flowers, Deliflor, Adomex, Special Orchids, Ichtus Flowers, Bredefleur, Florein, Gerbera, vd Lugt Lisianthus and Beyond Chrysant.
