Nairobi Hosts Flower Exhibition

This weekend on one of Nairobi’s roof top parking lots is turned into a flower exhibition that is known as the “Flower Olympics.” It is one of the most unique flower shows in the world.

Nairobi Hosts Flower ExhibitionThe so called “Soko la Maua” is one of the key events of the flower industry. The Kenya Flower Council is sponsoring this event along with the Flower Vendors Association.

This event brings together flower vendors from around the world; they showcase their skills in caring for flowers and creating arrangements.

Those who get their flowers on a small scale, medium or even big flower growers are represented by the Flower Vendors Association.

Mrs. Jane Wanyoike, the manager of the vendors associations says, “This exhibition seeks to create awareness about the flower industry in Kenya and gives Kenyans an opportunity to sample different types of flowers while helping them to understand what flowers to buy for what person and for which occasion.”

As a final note Wanyoike said, flowers wouldn’t have that much commercial success if they didn’t have an impact on relationships, health, moods and lifestyles.
