On behalf of The Agri Horticultural Society of India (AHSI), I would like to extend my best regards and welcome you to the WFRS Regional Convention 2020, to be held in, Kolkata, “The City of Joy”, from 9th - 12th January, 2020.
India is the largest democratic country in the world and is a land of magnificent monuments, rich heritage, varied culture and ethereal beauty.
This convention also coincides with celebrating 200 years of The Agri Horticultural Society of India.
The AHSI is organizing this spectacular convention along with The World Rose Federation(WRF), The Indian Rose Federation (IRF) and The Bengal Rose Society (BRS) to bring together eminent national and international rose enthusiasts who will share their knowledge and experience in an array of fine technical sessions and seminars.
The Rose has reigned Supreme in the world of flowers for thousands of years and has always been the Symbol of Love, Passion & Devotion and plays an integral part in our daily lives. There are many beautiful rose gardens in India which we are proud of.
Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, is the capital of West Bengal which is located at the banks of the historical Hooghly River. A city, where heritage and contemporary hues seem to merge in seamless rhapsody of colors. It is a major metropolis of India and also the political and cultural hub of the country.
The Theme of the WRFS Regional Convention Kolkata 2020 is “Colours of Joy”.
I take this opportunity to extend my invitation to visit our beautiful country to attend the Rose Convention and experience the legendary Indian hospitality.
I look forward to meeting you in Kolkata in January 2020.
