Gesneriads at Home around the WorldVirtual Convention 2021 June 28 to July 3, 2021
The Gesneriad Society is truly an international organization. Not only do gesneriads grow wild in more than 80 countries on six continents, but our Society has members in almost 50 countries all around the world. This year’s Virtual Convention will focus on the extent of our international appeal by having virtual presentations from various growers and researchers from around the world.
A great deal of special planning has gone into this virtual convention program and we hope that many of our members and friends will be able to participate. The Virtual Convention is open to everyone and will be held the week of June 28 – so be sure to save some time that week to participate. You will have the opportunity to listen to six international speakers, several student presentations, three talks for those new to gesneriads, meetings/programs from the Gesneriad Hybridizers Association and Conservation Committee, and our Annual Meeting … in addition to the 2021 Virtual Flower Show viewing, which will open on Friday, July 2.

We hope you will participate, no matter where you live. Members will also be able to vote for their favorites. Voting rules will be announced when the show goes live.
