Floriexpo, which is North America’s largest B2B floral show, is set to take place from June 5 to 7, 2024 at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A highly anticipated floral event, the expo presents an opportunity for professionals in the plants, flower, and floristry industries – and their other value chains – to connect, learn, and discover the latest trends and innovations.

With more than 1,500 floral professionals, and 225 global merchants attending, it, practically, brings into one place floral category vendors and mass-market floral buyers from supermarkets, chain stores, wholesale florist distributors, online retailers, and many more. Plus, it cuts across different segments including fresh cut flowers and greens to potted plants, containers, plush, technology, balloons, care and handling, design, and just about everything in between.

A Unique Experience Tailored to Floral Professionals at Floriexpo

Previously known as the International Floriculture Expo (IFE), this three-day floral trade event has undergone extensive makeovers to ensure that it better meets and caters to the specific needs of different floral professionals across all facets of the industry.

Floriexpo:

“Our goal is to make your experience at IFE the most effective three days of the year. Floriexpo brings together cross-category retailers from high-volume mass markets and mid-size grocers, to independent operators from the local, national, and international markets.”

For the reason that it facilitates face-to-face interactions, the expo presents a uniquely special platform for all these players in the floral industry to get together, engage, network, share ideas, and keep up with the dynamic floral industry trends.

Also noteworthy, Floriexpo offers two distinct opportunities for participation: exhibiting and attending. Exhibitors have the chance to showcase their brands and products to the industry’s top decision-makers. With a wide range of sponsorship and advertising opportunities available, exhibitors can maximize their visibility and engage with potential buyers on a large scale.

On the other hand, attending the event allows floral professionals to engross themselves in a floral-inspiring setting, where they can explore the latest products, network with suppliers and peers, and gain valuable insights.
