WORLD FLORAL EXPO MOVING TO CHICAGO IN 2018!

Chicago, Thursday August 31, 2017. Management of the international floral trade show “World Floral Expo”, which held this year’s edition of World Floral Expo in pavilion 2 of the World Market Center of Las Vegas, decided today to host the next edition of World Floral Expo in Chicago. After 4 years the event will return to the Rosemont Convention Center in 2018 and will be held from Tuesday March 20 to Thursday March 22.

Although it was decided earlier to stay another year in Las Vegas, a survey concluded it was better to keep on exploring different locations and choose for other US cities, in order to enable a maximum number of US flower buyers to attend the shows.

This year’s trade show was very well attended, especially on the first two days. Both exhibitors and visitors were very satisfied with the results. “Every trade show needs at least one good day and we had two good days. There was great buzz going around with lots of buyers walking the show, from the moment it opened until almost the end of the day ”, according to a spokesman of the trade show.

One of the surprising elements of this year was the high number of flower growers exhibiting in this year’s edition of World Floral Expo. More than 90% of all exhibiting companies were flower growers from the  main flower producing countries, i.e. USA, Ecuador, Colombia, Kenya and Ethiopia. The show being held in one of the most exciting cities of the USA, attractive show hours allowed everyone to combine business and pleasure in a great way.

 

 


 

 

USA Cut Flower Industry needs Imports & World Floral Expo Pre-Registered Attendees up 50%

Las Vegas, Friday March 10, 2017. World Floral Expo is the right show to attend when sourcing fresh cut flowers for the US market that are grown both inside and outside the USA. Although California is the main state where high quality flowers are being grown and distributed from, availability of some type of flowers keep depending on imports.

One important flower that the USA must continue to import from abroad, is the rose. It will be on display at the show and many varieties will be flown in from the 4 main rose producing countries, i.e. Ecuador, Kenya, Colombia and Ethiopia. A flower which availability is nearly fully depending on imports from these nations. The growing of roses in the USA is limited to an estimated total cultivation area of 100+ hectares and for this reason USA flower growers are not able to supply home demand for this type of flower.

Although Ecuador and Colombia are the traditional suppliers of roses to the USA, Kenyan and Ethiopian imports are increasing rapidly and starting to compete with South American flowers. With the planned new direct flights from Kenya to the USA, starting this June, and the already existing flights out of Ethiopia to New York, Los Angeles and Washington, the USA will have 4 supplying countries from 2 continents for roses.

World Floral Expo is opening in less than 2 weeks and with preregistration numbers increasing fast, a visit to Las Vegas, while combining business and pleasure, will be a very attractive trip to consider. With show hours being from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during the 3-day trade show, there is plenty of time to fulfill both your flower sourcing needs as well as enjoying quality time in one of the most exciting cities of the USA.
