As far as I know (which may not be very far) the world orchid conferences are more academic and professional events, rather than a show and sales of actual plants. Researchers, systematists, horticulturalists, etc getting together to present and hash things out regarding taxonomy, cultivation, amongst other things. I may wrong. Anyone ever attended?

EDIT - I just checked the website and I guess there is judging, and sales and stuff. But I still think it is quite different than typical orchid events.
