The 2013 European Carnivorous Plant Exhibition and Exchange is to be held at the Nancy botanical garden, France on the 5th -8th July.

The lecture programme runs from 5–7 July and there will also be a weekend event for the general public with lectures, workshops and tours (6-7 July).

On July 8th attendees will be treated to the breathtaking sights of the Vosges mountains, with a visit to the alpine garden of Haut Chitelet, a tour of natural peatland sites, and lunch in a typical French farmhouse.
The event is organized by Dionée (the French Organization of Carnivorous plants enthusiasts) and Nancy botanical garden.
