SINGAPORE: Visitors to the World Orchid Show at the 20th World Orchid Conference will get to see 5,000 species of orchids from 19 countries. The conference will be held at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre. The orchids displayed at the show, also known as the "Olympics of Orchids", will be judged by an international panel of over 210 judges from 25 countries. The exhibits include a "world orchid map" to showcase the diverse locations where orchids are found. Singapore, which hosted the show in 1963, is the only Asian city hosting the conference for a second time. The eight-day show from November 13-20 is expected to attract more than 300,000 visitors. Ticket holders to the show will also be able to preview the Flower Dome in Gardens by the Bay on November 14.
