US (LA): 1,000 visitors at World Floral Expo 2015

Expectations of an all-time high number of attendees were met at the 16th edition of World Floral Expo held last week in the Convention Center of Los Angeles. Over 1,000 high quality visitors, mainly flower importers, wholesalers and the bigger retailers attended the trade show one or more days and made all exhibitors very pleased with the outcome. Also several supermarket chains buyers were among the visitors to the great pleasure of many exhibitors. As one of the exhibitors quoted, “the LA show was the best ever, both in quantity as well as in quality. Chicago was already a hit last year, but this one surpassed that edition by far”.
 
During the opening speech, presented by the president of the Californian Flower growers & Shippers Association CalFlowers, Robert Kitayama expressed satisfaction and appreciation about the initiative of the show taking place in California this year. According to the spokesman of WFE Dick van Raamsdonk, the probable most remarkable fact to mention was that for the first time in history US and NON US flower growers exhibited together in one event in California. “This will proof to be a great benefit for all. For the exhibitor to share market information, knowledge and develop different forms of cooperation between themselves, and for the visitor to be able to source a much more complete package of fresh cut flowers at one place”, WFE spokesman Dick van Raamsdonk said.

World Floral will again be held in 2016. Exact place and date are being set at this moment. But in any case, it will be in the US state of California.
