Flower Show Postponement

February 2019

Kate Hillier, Event Director has announced the postponement of the New Zealand Flower and Garden Show for 2019.

“We have been delighted by the response from both visitors and exhibitors and have seen some spectacular displays over the last two years.”

However, she reiterated that the concept of the show has always been to alternate between different cities and venues and whilst the show has seen significant support from the Auckland residents who attended the show, the NZFGS team wish to explore other locations.

“The New Zealand Flower and Garden Show takes at least 12 months to plan, and rather than rushing to secure a location we have decided to take a year out, to be 100% certain of future plans.” Said Hillier.

“The flower show team and I would like to sincerely thank those that have offered their support, our wonderful sponsors, the exhibitors that created such spectacular displays and of course our show visitors, please be assured that Auckland will always be a likely venue for future shows.”
