NALS 2011 Annual Lily Show & Convention

The Ontario Regional Lily Society and the Royal Botanical Gardens are pleased to invite you to attend the North American Lily Society 2011 Convention and Show in beautiful southern Ontario with all its many attractions.

Come back and visit this site periodically. As plans are finalized the site will be updated with the latest developments.

The Convention

The convention will be held in two venues, the Royal Botanical Gardens where the Show and most activities will take place, and the Holiday Inn Burlington, our convention hotel where we will have our banquets. If you attended the NALS convention in 2001 you will be pleasantly surprised at the the new addition, renovated gardens, and other enhancements at the rejuvenated RBG. There is so much more to see!

There will be many interesting speakers who will share lilium experiences and expertise with you.

The Show

A sea of lilies will be on display in the Camilla and Peter Dalglish Atrium at the Royal Botanical Gardens, 580 Plains Rd. W., Burlington, ON. The venue for the show is absolutely spectacular - an atrium that allows the stems to be seen in natural light, "living walls" to add to the horticultural excitement, and an outdoor patio off the atrium that beckons you to sit, relax, and enjoy the water feature. Lily stems from across the divisions of the genus are expected from exhibitors from near and far. You are sure to see something new, unusual, or rarely shown. The artistic Design section of the show is sure to be colourful and creative. This show is absolutely not to be missed!

The Hotel

Your home away from home during the convention will be the Holiday Inn Burlington Hotel and Conference Centre. The hotel is conveniently located within minutes of the Royal Botanical Gardens at 3063 South Service Rd., Burlington, ON L7N 3E9. Shuttle service will be available between the hotel and the RBG. Major highways are quickly and easily accessed. As a convention delegate you will enjoy the high quality service, accommodation, and extensive amenities for which the Holiday Inn Burlington is known.

Book your room in good time to obtain the NALS group rate. Come early and/or stay late and take advantage of the special rates for your mini-vacation.

Tours  & Attractions

For both budding and committed photographers in the group there will be a photo contest. Refer to the Photo Contest webpage for details.

The Niagara peninsula is a world-renowned wine region. Enjoy a pre-convention tour of some of the acclaimed wineries, complete with wine-tasting. This tour will run only if minimum numbers are met.

On Saturday a bus tour past Niagara Falls to the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Brian Bergman's Lilycrest Gardens is planned. On Sunday there will be a bus tour to Sandra-Pat Willis' S‑W Gardens.
