European Countries Conference 2024

Welcome to the ELK website

58th edition 13-14-15 September 2024

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


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.

Admission is €5 for both the plant sale and the lectures, and this for the entire weekend. On Sunday morning, admission is free. Entrance is also free for residents at Duinse Polders who have booked through the ELK Committee.
