With many things changing in the world right now, we want to assure you that as we continue to plan for the International Floriculture Expo, the health and safety of our exhibitors, sponsors, staff, speakers and attendees is our top priority.
We continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as updates and recommendations from public health officials, federal, state, and local authorities, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are in close collaboration with the city of Miami Beach and the Miami Beach Convention Center as they confirm and roll out their COVID-19 guidelines. Additionally, we are working with leading event industry associations globally as they develop the All Secure Standards guidelines for the events industry.
Since this situation remains fluid, we will be adapting and expanding our plans. Our protocols will reflect the most current advice and best practices, so please check our website regularly for updates.
Our current measures will include:
- Health and Safety
- Increased touchless hand sanitizer stations throughout
- FACE MASK UPDATE: The International Floriculture Expo will follow the most up-to-date Miami Beach Convention Center masking guidelines.
- Handshake-free interactions
- Clean Environments
- Enhanced deep cleaning before, during, and after the event
- Increased sanitation of high-traffic areas
- Catering will employ the highest standard of food safety and pre-packaged food options
- Emergency Protocols
- Communication plan with event security, local officials, hospitals & healthcare providers
- Protocol aligned with local government and health authority advice
In addition to our own protocols, we will also be closely following the health and safety requirements set by the Miami Beach Convention Center, and updating our website accordingly.
The value of face to face is immeasurable and we are taking every effort to make sure your experience at our 2021 Expo, while perhaps different from what we’ve come to expect, is safe, positive, and productive, and helps you meet your business goals.

We value the support of everyone involved in the making of this event: our vendors, the local authorities, the venue and, most of all, our partners, friends and customers in the financial operations industry. We are looking forward to getting this strong community back together in the near future. Until then, we send heartfelt thoughts to those who are affected by COVID-19.
