The Boston Flower & Garden Show is currently on hold until appropriate dates at a new location can be determined. The show’s former venue, The Seaport World Trade Center is undergoing permanent redevelopment into offices and retail space. The show must be held during a very specific few weeks of the calendar to make it financially successful for the landscapers, vendors and non-profit organizations whose participation fuels their upcoming season. It also must be held in a central location with the proper size, facilities, utilities, affordable parking, and accessibility for attendees and exhibitors alike. With the loss of the Seaport WTC, and the show’s former location, the Bayside Expo Center, razed to the ground several years ago, few options for consumer events exist. Many other public shows have moved to other cities or stopped being produced altogether. We continue to explore creative alternatives and look forward to sharing news of a new venue when one is determined.
