At the Expo
For six months, starting on 14 April 2022, Almere (NL) will be the stage for the International Horticultural Exhibition Floriade Expo 2022. During the Floriade, the Dutch horticulture sector, in conjunction with national and international participants, will exhibit green solutions that can make our cities more fun, liveable and sustainable.
A celebration of green
The Floriade park will be a celebration of green and sustainable technology. New technologies for greenery, food, energy and health will be researched and implemented at this living laboratory. Visitors will be touched by what they see, smell and taste. The park consists of permanent elements and expo-specific ones. All contribute to Floriade’s four sub-themes: Greening the City, Feeding the City, Healthying the City and Energising the City. Inspiring gardens, conferences, workshops and exhibitions will be mixed with impressive attractions, surprising tasting sessions, art and culture. The site will be full of energy and action. Naturally, all in wonderful, green surroundings.
Dutch horticulture will present innovations and solutions for sustainable, liveable cities. Visitors will experience horticulture and have their senses stimulated by a huge variety of products.
There won’t be just Dutch organisations at Floriade Expo 2022. Some 40 countries will participate. National pavilions will present their culture, plants, flowers as well as local innovations and solutions to the rest of the world.
The arboretum will constitute the expo’s green structure as well as that of the future urban district Hortus. It will be an alphabetically organised tree and plant encyclopaedia that you can walk through.
Green bridges are a must in tomorrow’s green city. The Bridge Campus Flevoland will display two bridges during the expo constructed from waste flows from Almere. The two bridges are part of the new urban district Hortus’ infrastructure.
An 850-metre cable car link provides a fast, sustainable connection between the southern and northern parts of the Floriade park. The attraction provides an amazing view.
An important, permanent part of Floriade Expo 2022 is the real estate that will become part of the new, green urban district Hortus. Such as Aeres Hogeschool Almere at the Flevo Campus, Food Forum Pavilion en the Flores building.
The seeds for a sustainable, greener life should be sown in the young. Local cooperations will involve as many school children as possible in Floriade Expo 2022.
Art and culture
Floriade Expo 2022 will provide art and a wideranging cultural programme. Exhibitions, live music from classical to jazz, entertainment and orchestras. The park will be full of energy and action.
Food outlets and shopping
There are plenty of opportunities for every visitor to grab a bite or a drink. A range of restaurants, food trucks and tastings will offer local products, healthy snacks and meals.
From 14 April 2022 Floriade Expo 2022 is the greenest day out for young and old!
