FAQ

GENERAL

We have been following the developments around the corona virus for several weeks. A number of scenarios were prepared that permitted us, as an organisation, to keep various options open. Obviously, the safety and well-being of all those involved were of paramount importance in these considerations. On Tuesday 17/3/2020 the Board of Directors of Floralies Ghent decided  to postpone this year’s edition from 1-10 May to period of 29 April - 8 May 2022.

Floralies 2020 Ghent will be contacting everyone to see what the best solution is. Tickets that were sold for May will also be valid for the new period. Of course, the option of having tickets refunded in the event that you are unable to attend the exhibition in the new period will be available.

Given the large number of visitors involved, we request that you do not contact the Floralies or our booking service. Our administration will contact you directly, in due course.
Thank you in advance for understanding that this may take some time.
Please consult our website for further news.
