Every year, we look forward to connecting with the Water Gardening community, renewing friendships, sharing knowledge and learning from each other. Given the worldwide developments related to Covid-19, self-quarantine impositions and restrictions on all types of travel, we know it is no longer practical nor ethical to continue with our annual Symposium.
 
We have therefore made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 IWGS Symposium, scheduled to be held in Naples Florida, July 29- August 2, 2020. Thank you to the Symposium Planning team for all of the work that you have done outlining an incredible event. Your efforts will not go to waste, when we resume planning our Florida Symposium.
 
This was a tough call to make – the Symposium is an incredibly important event for us and it´s one of our favorite ways to stay in touch with all of you from around the world – but we need to prioritize the health and safety of everyone. These are difficult times. We urge you to stay healthy and do whatever you can to help one another and to make this a better world. We´re counting on you.
 
On a more positive note, all indications are that we will be able to continue with the 2020 New Waterlily Competition. We look forward to being to share the beautiful winners with you in late fall.
