As a global event for the horticultural industry, the International Horticultural Exhibition gathers the industry's global elites and is committed to promoting global exchange in artistic and cultural developments.
The International Horticultural Exhibition 2019, (Beijing Expo 2019 for short) will take place in the Yanqing District of Beijing from April 29 to Oct 7.
Themed "Live Green, Live Better," the Beijing Expo 2019 aims to integrate horticulture in daily life and connect one's soul with nature.
We will introduce age-old Chinese wisdom into the exhibition, and appeal to the world with the unique charm and characteristics of Chinese horticulture.
Held only 10 kilometers from the Badaling Great Wall, the Expo also is known as "the International Horticultural Exhibition at the Foot of the Great Wall."
The Exhibition Area: Four Pavilions and One Center
Centered as the landmark of Beijing Expo 2019, the China Pavilion takes inspiration from the traditional Chinese jade ornament of good fortune, Ruyi, with the imagery of gliding along green meadows and rivers. Drawing from the wisdom of ancient dwellings on trees and in caves, we wish to convey the ideals of ecological civilization through this 'living' and 'breathing' green architecture.

Indoor exhibitions and plant competitions will unfold at the International Pavilion. Blossoms are weaved into 94 umbrellas to create a sea of flowers. This floral ocean opens up as an enormous sunshade, shielding the area from the summer heat to provide a pleasant recreational area. When evening falls, it lights up and transforms into a spectacular night view of colors.

Life Experience Pavilion
The Life Experience Pavilion advocates 'green living' and the area adopts a minimal architectural style to recreate the realistic image of a heartwarming northern village. The themes of 'Sowing,' 'Growth,' 'Irrigation' and 'Harvest' bring out the suburban charm, enchanting visitors with the beauty of nature and country life.

The Botany Pavilion strives to showcase the horticultural diversity and the natural behavior of the ecosystem to raise awareness of the protection of ecology and horticulture. With the concept of 'Rising Horizon,' the pavilion is designed with inspiration from the vertical roots system of plants. It embodies the great vitality of deep-rooted plants, impressing viewers with strong visuals.

Located in the Gui Rui Lake Scenic Area, the Performance Center is the primary arena for the exhibition's opening and closing ceremonies. The center's design takes its inspiration from butterflies, and it resembles a butterfly peacefully frolicking among the fields. The building combines natural scenery and innovation, captivating viewers with the magnificence and elegance of our surrounding environment.
