The CPS has the honour of organising and hosting the prestigious European Carnivorous Plant Exhibit & Exchange - EEE 2011.

The event will be held at Chester Zoo on 2-3 July 2011, right into the heart of the Zoo. We are very grateful to Chester Zoo for agreeing to have us, and for the help they have offered to make the EEE 2011 a very special event.

Further information will be posted on a regular basis, along with a dedicated contact address.

I will be acting as the Sub-committee Chairman/Project Executive for the event and Dennis Balsdon will be the General Secretary/Project Manager.

A website will be provided this year along with an outline program of events. Full details will be published no later than the AGM, and preferably earlier.

Today's note is simply to inform you of the event. We look forward to posting news on the EEE 2011 as it comes, including how you can get involved. We actively encourage plant traders/professional nurseries to take part and would welcome interest from holders of National Collections to put on a display.

Kind regards

Tim

Had to get a few arrangements sorted first, but really excited to kick it off at last. If we can pull off the program we have planned then you will not want to miss it! Plus you get two days at a fantastic Zoo too, a truly fabulous venue and a very welcoming host to boot.

Happy days! :tease:

It is fantastic it is at Chester zoo; it has a good display of CP, close to 2 airports, excellent B&Bs and restaurants..and they get literally thousands of families with kids through the door which will be perfect to attract new interest into the hobby.
