European Floristic Championship – Europa Cup 2022
26-28 August 2022
International Congress Centre in Katowice
This is an event around which crowds of floristry and flower enthusiasts from all over Europe gather every four years. Representatives from each country enter this prestigious competition to select the one who deserves the palm of victory in the European arena. The main organiser of the event is the International Floristic Organisation-Florint.
The host of this year’s Championships, the date of which has been postponed from June 2020 to 26-28 August 2022 due to the difficult epidemiological situation, is the Association of Polish Florists. For the first time in the history of Poland, a floristic event of such high rank is taking place here, specifically in Katowice.
This year’s Europa Cup 2022 will be inspired by music. So far, floristry has been judged by sight, smell and touch. The Floristic European Cup 2022 is a time of breakthrough. We will move into a different, hitherto unknown dimension. A dance of the senses awaits us. Florists taking part in the competition during the 6 competitions will have the opportunity to refer to their, individual musical preferences and to mark their cultural distinctiveness. The tasks prepared will also demonstrate the sensitivity, emotionality and openness of the participants, and the flowers in their hands will have the chance to become a means of creating unique, who knows, perhaps even moving “paintings”.
The competition is spread over two days – Friday and Saturday – and culminates in the Grand Finale. It is then, on Saturday evening, that the six finalists will be selected to face the final competition task – a surprise – in front of the audience.
The Grand Finale is the concluding event of the Championship, packed with floral experiences as well as those from other areas of the broader arts. Participants will be able to experience live the excitement that accompanies the moment when the Winner of Europa Cup 2022 is announced and spend an unforgettable evening.
