What is ORCHidea?

ORCHidea is an annual international free entrance trade-show dedicated to the world of orchids and rare plants that takes place in Pistoia, at the MATI 1909 Center.

Two days entirely dedicated to these unique and fascinating plants, during which you can not only buy Orchids from Italian and international exhibitors, but also find what is necessary for the care and maintenance of the specimens and participate in seminars and conferences on the subject, all for free.

The trade-show also offers visitors the opportunity to visit the Mati center and buy specimens of the vast collection of roses, flowers, herbs and shrubs for outdoor use in the exhibition rooms adjacent to the trade-show.

Entrance fees, seminars and conferences are completely free of charge. The participation to the photo contest, organised in order to select the most beautiful and significant photo among all the shots to make it the symbol of the next edition of the trade-show, is also free of charge.
