Eighth Beijing Florascape Flower Show
Beijing Florascape (BJFC) is one of the largest and most influential state-owned, ornamental young-plant suppliers and landscaping companies in China.
The BJFC flower show normally holds every 2 years during IPM Beijing. Because of the strict travelling restrictions due to the COVID-19, BJFC created the second digital broadcast of a flower show this year, like the one in 2020. With the use of VR technology, they achieved a safe but entertaining program for the attendees at BJFC’s location. The virtual show was also broadcast across social media platforms such as Wechat, together with lots of online lectures.
The theme of this year's spring flower show is "growing and blooming together with You". The show will last from May 12 to May 22. More than 400 new varieties of self-bred and native plants, more than 600 innovations of foreign breeding companies are displayed in the International Flower Port, Shunyi District, Beijing, and Beijing Florascape Co., Ltd.’s R&D center..
