Flower Show mobile App now available for download

Science and technology have come a long way since 1829, when the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society held the first American flower show.

For the 2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show, “Hawaii: Islands of Aloha,” technological components will play an exciting new role in exhibits and in the way visitors experience the Show.

Before guests arrive at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, they will be able to prepare for their visit on a new mobile application.

Experience the Flower Show as never before with the Flower Show App which is now available on smartphones, tablets and any device that has Internet connectivity.

It also allow visitors to find out everything that is happening at the Show, from exhibitor information, to Marketplace shopping, to the schedule of lectures, demonstrations and performances, all in one easy-to-navigate interface.

Guests will even be able to participate in the real-time voting on the design competitions at the Designer’s Studio.

Browse the list of presentations and bookmark the ones you want to attend.

Navigate the Show floor with detailed maps.

Rate the exhibits and leave feedback.

Find parking lots, local restaurants, and other tools to plan your trip.

**Compatible with most mobile devices (including the iPhone, iPad, and Android), the Flower Show App will maximize your Flower Show experience.
