ELK 2021

European Countries Conference 2021

Welcome to the ELK website

55th edition 10-11-12 September 2021

The second weekend of September is traditionally the weekend of the ELK, the weekend of the European cactus and other succulent plants enthusiasts: 

ELK 2021


Recently, the Belgian Consultation Committee decided to postpone the relaxation of the corona measures planned for September. Under the current measures, the organisation of the ELK is particularly complex and difficult, on the one hand because of the limited number of people allowed at the plant sales at the same time, and on the other hand because of the many checks that have to be carried out. We are now looking forward to a new Consultation Committee on 13 August. Hopefully, some measures will then be relaxed and the ELK can continue as planned. The ELK Committee is doing everything in its power to ensure that the most important succulent event of the year goes ahead safely. The final decision will be made shortly after 13 August. We thank you for your patience and understanding.


The European Countries Conference ELK is probably the largest international gathering of cactus and succulent enthusiasts. The conference is held in September every year on the holiday centre "Corsendonk Duinse Polders' in Blankenberge, Belgium.

The program includes lectures in various languages given by renowned speakers. At the plant sale over 130 enthusiasts and professional growers offer cacti and other succulents plants for every purse. Next to the more traditional amateur plants also real show plants, novelties, accessories and a large choice of books.

Free entrance to the exhibition and the lectures.
