The Cape Town Flower Show will bloom again – this time in a new home at Sun International’s GrandWest in Goodwood, Cape Town from 19 to 22 October 2017.
Following the successful inaugural Cape Town Flower Show held at The Castle of Good Hope in October 2016, event organisers, Growth Events (Pty) Ltd believes that a very strong foundation has been built for the show to grow from strength to strength.
CALLING ALL GARDEN DESIGNERS AND LANDSCAPERS
The show gardens at the 2016 Cape Town Flower Show were definitely the draw card for the visitors who flocked to the show. So, The Cape Town Flower Show is now asking the landscaping industry to register interest in participating in the show – for making a garden, showing garden concepts or of course creating functional gardens to inspire the show’s visitors, particularly given the drought situation and our need to be extremely water-wise these days. Karey Evett, CEO of Growth Events said, “Last year we saw some really interesting collaborations between designer, landscaper and suppliers, all working together to achieve the most exciting gardens. We offer landscapers the space for free, so they can team up with their own suppliers and sponsors to create something wonderful.”
Show Gardens PM, Paul Odendaal commented, “This year is going to be even more about creating water-wise gardens and educating the visitors to the show. We also want to see show garden designs that are relevant, edgy, urban and functional.”
Landscapers can submit their interest by contacting the Event PM, Penny Sparrowhawk on email@example.com or call the show office 021 823 4000.
