The Beijing Expo 2019 is showcasing the world’s best-in-class flowers, plants, and landscapes as part of a 6-month, 500 hectare exhibition, the largest of its kind in history. Landscape designers hailing from Denmark to Japan are among those who have been invited to create special exhibits that represent their national cultures under the theme “Live Green, Live Better.”, along with a range of gardens that demonstrate the diversity of China’s natural landscapes. In total, more than 100 countries and international organizations are participating in the Expo. An estimated 16 million visitors will attend the park and take part in almost 2,500 different cultural events. Within the park, 50,000 trees have been preserved and 100,000 trees and shrubs planted to improve the condition of wetlands, purify water and provide a habitat for migratory birds.
