Update From The International Floriculture Expo

February 18, 2021

INTERNATIONAL FLORICULTURE EXPO TO TAKE PLACE SEPTEMBER 16-18TH AT THE MIAMI BEACH CONVENTION CENTER

MIAMI, FL—February 18, 2021 – The International Floriculture Expo today announced new dates for the 2021 event which will now take place Thursday, September 16th- Saturday, September 18th at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Due to the recently worsening magnitude of the public health and safety issues posed by COVID-19, the Organizer, Diversified Communications has concluded that postponement of the Expo to later in the Fall is unavoidable.

“We have heard repeatedly from both exhibitors and buyers that IFE needs to happen in 2021. Luckily, we were able to secure very attractive dates in September that will put us in the best possible position to bring the Floral community together in Miami,” said Event Manager, Harrison Hines.

“Additionally, the new day pattern of Thursday – Saturday allows for our attendees and exhibitors to stay the weekend and really take advantage of all Miami has to offer” said Hines.

The International Floriculture Expo continues to make the health of all visitors, exhibitors, partners and staff the absolute top priority as preparations continue for the 2021 event. Read more about safety protocols on our Safety page here which will be continuously updated.

IFE customers can look forward to an entire program of free floral-focused, educational content as part of Floral Connect, a virtual IFE spinoff that was originally brought to market in the fall of 2020. Topics will include seasonal product spotlights, interactive workshops, visual and design presentations, and sessions focused on profit growth and technical aspects of the floral industry. Sessions are free to join and will continue throughout the year leading up to the International Floriculture Expo this fall in Miami.

The International Floriculture Expo team will continue to reach out to customers regarding opportunities to build business and reconnect with the floral buying community for the 2021 edition.

International Floriculture Expo Announces Cancellation of September 2020 Event

Plans for a virtual opportunity for buyers and suppliers as well as online events and educational content underway

MIAMI, FL—July 14, 2020 — Diversified Communications, organizer of the International Floriculture Expo today announced that due to ongoing health and safety issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary to cancel the 2020 edition of the International Floriculture Expo that was re-scheduled to take place on September 15 – 17, 2020 in Miami Beach, FL, USA.

“It is with great disappointment that we have to bring you the news that we will not be able to meet in person in 2020,” said Harrison Hines, Event Manager, Diversified Communications.

Despite some re-opening measures nationally and locally, there are still far too many uncertainties about the impact that COVID-19 will have on travel and mass gatherings this September. Accordingly, it is impossible to hold a live event that would provide an experience our floral community would find valuable.

The International Floriculture Expo team will continue to reach out to customers regarding opportunities to build business and reconnect with the floral buying community for the 2021 edition.

Additionally, the organizers are well underway in the planning of a multi-dimensional virtual opportunity for the floral audience to do business with suppliers, access educational resources and connect with other industry professionals. More detail is expected in August 2020.

“We thank everyone in the industry, our vendors and partners for their continued support while navigating these difficult times,” said Hines. “We look forward to bringing the floral community back together in Miami Beach on June 8 – 10th, 2021.”
