19th WFRS World Convention
27 October @ 9:00 am - 3 November @ 5:00 pm ACDT
NEW DATES ANNOUNCED FOR THE WFRS WORLD ROSE CONVENTION IN 2022
Rosarians in Australia and across the world are looking forward to the 19th World Federation of Rose Societies World Rose Convention – hosted by the National Rose Society of Australia. This Convention has been postponed as a result of COVID19.
The Convention will now be held from 27 October – 3 November, 2022. Importantly, the wonderful venues initially secured have been retained – the world class Adelaide Convention Centre has been re-booked and official Convention Hotel, The Intercontinental Hotel, is hoping to retain the same special room rates.
Unfortunately, we had no choice but to seek a postponement. With COVID19 still active globally, restrictions on travel are likely to remain in place for some time. In addition, we are currently challenged in seeking to finalise costs as both potential sponsors and tourism operators are in shut down mode. More details regarding our new program and tours will be forthcoming later. Hopefully, they will be similar to those in place for 2021.
In the meantime, the Convention Committee encourages you to support our fundraising efforts. ‘Unconventional Lady’ was launched by Treloar Roses as a fundraiser for the Convention. This classic Hybrid Tea has large, bright pink, very fragrant blooms on long stems. It is upright and vigorous to 1.7m with good disease resistance, healthy glossy foliage and good repeat flowering. Treloar Roses is generously donating $2 from the sale of each rose. Order online www.treloarroses.com.au or phone 1300 044 852.
Our Rose Society wines have made over $6,700 for the Convention. Thanks to Patrick of Coonawarra we have an extensive range of quality wines which represent amazing value for money. Order online www.patrickofcoonawarra.com/rose or phone (08) 8737 3687.
