    Default New York Show advice please ?

    What happened to the New York Orchid Show ? I went to the last one in The World Trade Center, a few months before 9/11 . Obviously it could not continue there, but I heard afterwards that it was going back to The Rockefeller Center , where ( I think ?) it had been held before The Twin Towers were built.
    Googling, brings up a show in the NY Botanic Garden , but no info about that. Since it lasts for a month , it can hardly be an equivalent for the old show - for no vendor would be able to stay that long ( I suppose). Or maybe they have sales weekends ? I note that it is at approximately the same time as the old NYOS.
    I ask because I was thinking of paying another visit ( from England) perhaps traveling by one of the Cunard liners - Queen Mary 2 or whatever - I have been thinking of suggesting that ( probably two week trip , cruise and stay, visit show, fly home) as a birthday present for my wife who will be 85 just before the 2014 show.
    If this doesn’t work out, we both like Florida in late winter, early Spring - is there any major orchid show about that time there, which we might visit on a trip ?

    The society that hosted the NY show mismanaged some things and after 27 annual years of the show it stopped. I miss going down to it. I met our BD (Bruce) there one year. There are tons of South Florida Shows usually starting in mid to late January. The American Orchid Society has a Show Calendar, on their web site. Usually the last weekend in January is the Tamiami International Orchid Festival in the Miami area.

    Yes. So sad. I did enjoy seeing Ron at the show in 2008 (I think it was!).

    cheers,
