There were many larger bonsai on display outdoors in the entrance way greeting the visitors to the 5th Zhongguo Fen Penjing Exhibition in Nanging, China. A few smaller, but still large size specimens were displayed indoors in the demo room. All of these were very large and impressive.
The entire exhibition was held at a working private nursery and greenhouse. Everything had to be moved and cleaned. Floors were covered in red felt and large walls were constructed as backgrounds in the entrance way. Approximately US$150,000 was spent on the exhibition. And, unlike other Chinese exhibitions this was NOT paid for by the government. The generous nursery owner along with a couple bonsai organizations funded the entire excellent event. I felt so honored to be invited to demonstrate and attend this special exhibition.
