Book Now – U.K. Prepares for 2024 IWGS Symposium

Published on February 24, 2024

The dates for the 2024 International Waterliliy and Water Gardening Society (IWGS) Symposium are as follows: Main Symposium Tuesday, July 16th – Saturday, July 20, 2024; Optional Pre-Symposium Day Tuesday, July 16, 2024; and optional Post-Symposium Day Saturday, July 20, 2024.

The 2024 IWGS Symposium will be based in the town of Reading, England, which is about 35 miles west of London, and has good transport connections to London and Heathrow Airport (LHR). The main symposium will include visits to the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and RHS Wisley garden, plus a trip to Bennetts Water Gardens in Dorset. There will be an education day on Friday, July 19. 

The pre-symposium day is a trip from Reading to gardens in the Cotswolds. There will be limited spaces on this day.

The post-symposium day will visit two water plant growers near London, plus the gardens at Wakehurst. Drop-off points at the end of this day will suit those needing to travel on to airports (Gatwick (LGW) & Heathrow (LHR)), or London hotels, or returning to Reading. There will be limited spaces on this day.

The Symposium location is conveniently located for those who might add on a holiday in the United Kingdom or mainland Europe (e.g. Paris Olympics), before or afterward. Keep an eye on https://iwgs.org/symposium/ for updated information.
