FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is IFE Floral Connect?

IFE Floral Connect is a full week of business matchmaking, networking and education powered by AI technology. The turnkey digital interface allows you to connect with the suppliers that are a fit for you via virtual meeting rooms, chat and more. Also, as part of Floral Connect we will be streaming our popular IFE Education Program. Look for multiple curated sessions per day, as well as fun streaming special events such as Iron Designer All Stars!

Do we get to select suppliers we want to meet with?

Yes, based on your profile appropriate matches will be suggested. However, you can also request meetings just by viewing the supplier list and product catalog and finding the companies you are interested in.

Are firm appointments scheduled?

Yes, once a meeting is accepted, the time will be blocked off on both you and your connection’s calendar.

How long are the meetings and what is the format?

Meetings are 20 minutes long and will take place in a virtual meeting room via video stream.

Are there virtual booths?

IFE Floral Connect is NOT a virtual tradeshow and there are no virtual “booths” . Participating companies will set up a company profile with key information, products offered and industries served. 

When is the deadline to register?

IFE Floral Connect will take place Sept. 15-18, however it is important that you register as soon as possible and fill out your profile. The powerful AI platform uses your profile and the types of products and suppliers you engage with to help make meaningful suggestions. The sooner you get started the more customized your experience will be!

Will suppliers be given my contact info?

No. All networking will take place within the platform. Suppliers will not have access to your personal information and if you would like a supplier to connect with you outside of Floral Connect you will need to provide them with your contact info.
