Dutch Lily Days 2020 cancelled due to Coronavirus


The organisation of the Dutch Lily Days has decided to cancel  this year’s event due to the risk and the impact of the coronavirus. It was planned for Tuesday to Friday, June 2-5. During the Dutch Lily Days, lily breeders and exporters in the Netherlands open their doors to a huge number of visitors from near and far.

The event, which should have celebrated its 10-year jubilee this summer, is being postponed to 2021.

Given the recent measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the organisation considers it sensible to postpone the event. The participating companies do not want to endanger the health and safety of the visitors and their own staff unnecessarily. The organisation regrets being forced to take this decision, but it is obvious that the health and safety of all those involved take priority.

Fourteen participants

The fourteen participants that are postponing the tenth edition of the Dutch Lily Days until 2021 are P. Aker, Van den Bos Flowerbulbs, Bot Flowerbulbs, De Jong Lelies, Lily Company, Mak Breeding, Onings Holland, C. Steenvoorden, GAV’s Lilies, Gebr. Vletter & Den Haan, VWS Flowerbulbs, World Breeding, Zabo Plant and Royal Van Zanten.
