Centennial Celebration

Our Centennial Celebration at the Historic Biltmore Hotel

Due to concerns over the ongoing spread of Covid-19 and its delta variant coupled with Miami-Dade county's continued high positivity rates for the virus, and in consideration for the health and well-being of our members, volunteers, and guests the Centennial Celebration Committee and the AOS Board of Trustees have opted to postpone the Centennial Celebration event and associated actiivities until April 6th - 9th, 2022.

Taking this initiative allows us the opportunity to reschedule the event with enough time to allow everyone who wishes to participate to do so.  Your safety is of utmost importance to us. Any questions can be addressed to the AOS Headquarters office at TheAOS@aos.org.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and kindly ask for your understanding.

We hope that you will be able to join us in the Spring! 
UPDATE - You can make your hotel reservations now!


We are proud to present the American Orchid Society's Centennial Celebration! We invite you to join us for this once in a lifetime celebration.

The four-day celebration will encompass our 2022 Spring Members Meeting activities, an exciting live auction, and a splendid gala banquet that will feature a gourmet dinner, live entertainment, music, and dancing in a beautiful and historic setting.

We’d love to have you join us!

From our founding in 1921, the AOS has been the go-to resource for orchid growers of all stripes. Many members are hobbyists who enjoy growing orchids and want to learn more about them. Others enjoy the thrill of exhibiting their orchids in shows hosted by local orchid societies. And still, others aspire to become an orchid judge. Many are interested in the latest hybridizing trends, others in protecting orchids in the wild, and still others in research that advances orchidology.

From our award-winning Orchids magazine to the well-attended educational Webinars about all things orchid... from the expert speakers and outstanding vendors at the popular AOS members meeting to the highly respected system for awarding orchids of superior quality... from our conservation initiatives support to our research projects sponsorship... the AOS is the connecting place for people whose common interest is the orchid.

The Board of Trustees and the Centennial Celebration Committee look forward to welcoming you to this momentous event and its Spring Members Meeting activities.

Join us at the beautiful landmark location - The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida, for days of camaraderie, orchids, and jubilee as we reminisce about our past and aim forward to the next 100 years!
