OSCOV is extremely disappointed to announce the cancellation of this year’s OSCOV Melbourne Orchid Spectacular. The current lockdown and the Victorian Government’s existing covid restrictions make running the event in less than 3 weeks’ time impossible. Because OSCOV is an adaptable, inventive and resilient organisation – we are planning a number of new initiatives, including a ‘virtual’ Show in place of this year’s Spectacular, an end of year dinner and auction, and a ‘OSCOV Partner of the Week’ promotion spotlighting the Vendors and Sponsors who would have participated in the Spectacular this year. Keep an eye on the OSCOV website and the Melbourne Orchid Spectacular and OSCOV Facebook pages for more details. We hope everyone in the Australian orchid community stays safe and healthy during these challenging times.
