US (FL): Photos WF&FSA's annual Floral Distribution Conference

With more than 700 attendees, the Wholesale Florists & Florist Supplier Association (WF&FSA) closed its annual Floral Distribution Conference in Miami on Friday, October 21st. The three-day event offered a varied conference and the opportunity to display ornamental products of nearly 100 exhibitors, mainly from Colombia, Ecuador and California.

This year, the event was held at a new location; the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC). And other than the new location, also a Breeders Showcase was organized. This addition to the conference offered the attendees the opportunity to view the latest varieties

Jairo Cadavid of the the new Association of Colombian Nurseries and Ornamental Growers, Colviveros, was also present at the event and was so kind to send us some pictures.
