Singapore Garden Festival 2008: 25 July to 1 August


Singapore Garden Festival 2008: 25 July to 1 August 2008

The Singapore Garden Festival 2008 will be held from 25 July 2008 to 1 August 2008 at Suntec Convention Centre, Singapore from 10am to 10 pm daily.

Billed as the first garden show in the tropics to house the world’s top garden and floral designers that began in 2006, the inaugural Singapore Garden Festival received many accolades from industry experts, horticulturists and garden hobbyists to put it as one of the top international garden show in the tropics.
Some 200,000 visitors thronged that first show in 2006 and I expect more visitors to the Singapore Garden Festival 2008 this time round. If you can get tickets to visit during the 3-day trade show, you will find more space and time for yourself to enjoy the various beautiful garden and flower exhibits.

The Singapore Garden Festival exhibition will occupy several floors at Suntec Convention Centre. According to its website, these are:

Level 6
