Visitors Exhibitors

Committees and evaluation process

Exhibitors

In order to spread culture and passion for this kind of gardening, to stimulate a high-quality production and presentation, exhibition spaces will be judged by two Committees:

a. Technical Committee will judge variety as well as the rarity of arboreal specimens of the collection, attention to research and detail, etc.
b. Aesthetical Committee will judge staging of spaces, as well as lighting solutions, awarding the best set-up.

The top three awarded by each Committee will be highlighted on next-year event Catalogue, recognisable by the “Excellency” label.

It is recommended a correct labelling of each arboreal sample, as well as a harmonic staging as a whole.
