Australia has been awarded the honour and burden of hosting the 19th World Federation of Rose Societies Convention in 2022.

It will run from the 27th of October to the 3rd of November, 2022.

The World Federation of Rose Societies World Rose Convention takes place every three years, with more rose experts and rose-lovers per square inch than anywhere else on planet Earth for a week in the host city participating in lectures, social dinners, exhibitions, and award presentations. The last one, in 2018, was held in Copenhagen. After Adelaide, in 2025, will be Fukuyama.

It is wonderful that the convention is able to take place “in person” with participating Australian and international delegates meeting face-to-face. It will also be streamed live from the Adelaide Convention Centre. Rose-lovers will be able to register to view, online, the Opening Ceremony, the three-day Lecture Series, and the WFRS Gala Awards Dinner.
