Thanks for posting this! I'd love to go...I will try to convince my hubby, but since he's not into orchids, he'd be dead weight. Maybe a group is going that wouldn't mind tag-alongs?;>


It will be really nice to meet some of you personally there.
I think there will be really lectures and possibilities for discussions.

Best greetings from Germany
