The conference

The Scientific Conference on Andean Orchids originated in Ecuador and takes place every three years. The last version was held in the city of Cali, Colombia in 2015, that being the first year out of Ecuador.

The conference is a high-level event of great interest to all students, professors, experts and amateurs of the conservation and cultivation of orchids.

The lecturers are world-renowned researchers who will share their knowledge in different areas such as taxonomy, systematics, ecology, biotechnology, conservation and cultivation, in order to help catalog, understand and preserve the extraordinary diversity of the Andean ecosystems.

The organization of an event of this magnitude requires an immense commitment and a great economic and human effort on the part of its organizers. We rely on the full support and collaboration of many of its members to carry it out successfully.

The Conference will be based at the EAFIT University campus and will take place during the Feria de las Flores and parallel to the exhibition «Orquídeas, Flores y Artesanías 2019» in the Orquideorama of the Botanical Garden Joaquín Antonio Uribe in Medellín.
