It will hold competition activities of floral landscape developed by universities, scientific research institutes, enterprises and individuals. Visitors can attend horticultural science popularization and experience activities and seminars during the festival.

"The festival will be a platform for international exchanges on horticultural products, technologies and designs," said Zhang.

He said the venue will be used for a series of cultural and tourism activities in the future, such as music festivals and competitions.
