Over the last 12 months I have been travelling across Europe meeting bonsai artists, clubs and traders and the support for the event has been superb. Over 75 trees from many of Europe’s well know artist are confirmed for the exhibition, displays of Suiseki, Shohin and some special creations are in the planning. 11 artists are confirmed. The publicity machine is well underway and a drip feed of press releases has started building anticipation and excitement in the press. Many of the hotels are now fully booked so if you have not secured your accommodation I suggest you do not hesitate.
