Meaning ‘Passion for Flowers’, Fleuramour is one of Europe’s most prestigious floral events and has been a highlight of the ECT tour calendar for many years. Set in the historic grounds of the National Commandery at Alden Biesen in Bilzen, Belgium and hosted by Rekad, publishers of Fleur Créatif magazine, the show takes place every September, attracting exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.

2019's theme was Back to the Future and saw Italian floral designer Angelica Lacarbonara transform the famous Courtyard of Honour into an extraordinary floral spaceship made from woven strands of ivy and clematis covered with 80 different varieties of flowers.
