"South Africa will host the World Orchid Conference (WOC) in 2014...
This...will be confirmed at the next conference, to be held in Singapore in

... the Thebe Exhibitions and Events Group... with Thebe Conferences will
manage the event on behalf of the South African Orchid Society...

Approximately 3 000 delegates, many of them with spouses, are expected to
attend the September 2014 event at the Sandton Convention Centre in
Johannesburg, with some 80 exhibitors. The event will extend over five or
six days and include meetings of several international bodies, including
the International Orchid Commission.

The first WOC was held in St Louis, Missouri in 1954. Ever since it's been
held every three years, each time in a different city [two times in Miami /
1984 and 2008]... It was held in Durban in 1981.
Displays at the WOC include plants by amateur orchid societies and
professional and commercial growers, educational and scientific displays
and illustrations and fine, applied and decorative arts featuring orchids,

I think everything composed was actually very logical. But, what about this?

suppose you were to create a awesome headline? I am not saying
your content is not solid, but suppose you added a
headline to possibly get people's attention? I mean "South Africa will host the World Orchid Conference (WOC) in 2014" is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and
note how they create post titles to get people to click.
You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
