The International Floriculture Expo (IFE) was formerly called the Super Floral Show (SFS) until its current producers, Diversified Communications, acquired it from Gainshare Media in 2005, expanding Diversified’s portfolio of grocery events. Diversified produces over 100 trade shows, conferences, and publications. IFE remains the largest high-volume B2B floral show in North America, uniting floral category vendors with mass market floral buyers from supermarkets, chain stores, wholesale florist distributors, online retailers and more. Product categories span from fresh cut flowers and greens to potted plants, containers, plush, technology, balloons, care and handling, design, and everything in between.
Until a move to New Orleans, LA in 2014, Diversified produced the International Floriculture Expo for many years in Miami, FL. In 2015, the International Floriculture Expo partnered with the United Fresh Produce Association and was held along side the United Fresh show and FMI Connect at McCormick Place in Chicago. After a very successful three years of co-location, the 2018 edition will introduce the United FreshTEC and United FreshMKT, as well as the Global Cold Chain Expo, which focuses on the supply chain.
