Registration is open for the International "Barcelona Rose Convention"

posted 22/01/2014

An international event on roses and their use in public and private areas around the world, taking place in the Palau de Pedralbes from 11 to 14 May, will be joined by renowned experts from the sector. The registration period closes on 24 April 2014.

From 12 to 14 May 2014 (inclusive), Barcelona will be playing host to the International Rose Convention: the Regional Convention of the World Federation of Rose Societies. The convention's slogan is "Roses in the Sun", as the topics under discussion will have a special emphasis on Mediterranean climates. The event, which is aimed at members of the World Federation of Rose Societies, as well as professionals, enthusiasts and rose lovers in general, will coincide with the 14th edition of the International Competition for New Roses in Barcelona.

The Rose Convention is a European event dedicated to expertise in roses, a forum for exchanging and updating knowledge on the world of roses and for publishing studies on and applications of locally hybridised roses in public and private areas.

The convention, which is part of an international calendar of events related to roses, will be turning our city into the 2014 world capital of roses.
