The World Botanic Garden Exhibition’s (WBGE) arrangement was completed on 9th June, 2008. The exhibition includes all the originally planned elements of design, and was completed ahead of schedule.

The exhibition contains 70 individual exhibition panels with 70 stories highlighting world botanic gardens, institutions, and inviduals involved in plant conservation and research. Other exhibits include 2 seed display cabinets, 2 leaf display cabinets, and an interactive plant scent station (where visitors can smell different oils and perfumes derived from fragrant plants). The main exhibition also includes interesting living plants (most of them are medicinal plants) arranged throughout the area.

The Plants Display and Exit area, is an open green space where visitors can wander after viewing the major exhibition area. It includes 30 rare and interesting species of live plants.

There is a large (5.5m x 7.5m) LCD screen plays videos provided by various gardens. Visitors can easily watch the program from a distance, and will be drawn to the exhibit to learn more.

An acknowledgement panel can be found at the exit, which lists the organizing institutions, and gives a general thanks to all participating parties. Included here are some photos from the exhibition area.
