Lovely International Flower Show in Philadelphia

Philadelphia convention center is located in the busy downtown area of Philadelphia. The convention center was designed to match and maintain the city’s ease of access. The convention center acts as a host for number of majestic events including music performances, art shows, and trade expos.

Since 1829, the Philadelphia Flower Show has entertained guests with an incredible display of plants, flowers, and trees. The show celebrates the glorious hobby of indoor gardening and horticulture.
