The World Orchid Conference Trust was established by its patrons, the American Orchid Society and the Royal Horticultural Society, to ensure the maintenance of the
highest standards through successive World Orchid Conferences.
The Trust’s responsibilities go beyond the initial process of venue selection to
- the securing of continuity and the transfer of experience from each event to the
- the provision of support to the selected local organisers from its own resources of expertise
and, where necessary, from those of its patrons. This may include advice and assistance with the sourcing of
funds for an event’s start-up costs.
