This year, Australia has the honour of hosting the 19th World Federation of Rose Societies Convention.

It will run from the 27th of October to the 3rd of November, 2022. See the countdown to the right to see how many days left until this event!

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.
