Yangzhou International Horticultural Exposition

  • Date 08 April 2021 - 08 October 2021
  • Location Yangzhou, Jiangsu province, China

Opening in 2021, the Yangzhou International Horticultural Exposition aims to showcase how horticulture and greening can be an important part of future urban planning and sustainable lifestyles. Yangzhou, a prefecture-level city in central Jiangsu Province, has a long horticultural history. The Expo is sponsored by the National Forestry and Grassland Administration of China (NFGA), China Flower Association and the People’s Government of Jiangsu Province. It is co-organised by the People’s Government of Yangzhou Municipality.

The INBAR Garden

INBAR will have a space at the Yangzhou Expo, similar to the Bamboo Eye Pavilion and Garden at the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019, Beijing, China.

The total area of the Yangzhou World Horticultural Expo is 230 hectares, of which the INBAR Garden covers an area of more than 3000 square metres. It is composed of a main building constructed of bamboo, and a traditional bamboo garden. 

As with the Bamboo Eye Pavilion in 2019, INBAR’s Pavilion and Garden at the Yangzhou Expo will serve as a hub for events which promote bamboo and rattan, including awareness-raising activities on bamboo and rattan; a week promoting bamboo culture; a concert of bamboo musical instruments; and a display of winning pieces from the photo exhibition ‘Bamboo and life’.

The INBAR Pavilion will be made from bamboo, and its design is inspired by the shape of fish: a symbol of luck in Chinese culture.
