The official start of the roadshow was on 21 June during the ‘Floriade Invites!’ event, where interested parties were able to take a look at how the park was coming on. The Floriade is held once every ten years. The last one was in 2002 in Hoofddorp, near Schiphol airport. The first Floriade was held in Rotterdam in 1960 and the Euromast is a reminder of this even now in 2009. The 2012 Floriade in Venlo is the sixth edition and will be held from April until the end of October 2012. The Floriade is not only a huge tourist attraction that draws people from all over the world to the Netherlands but also a platform for the Netherlands as an important innovator in floriculture and other fields. www.floriade.nl
