AIFD “Passion” Symposium 2013
What happened in Las Vegas, didn’t exactly stay in Las Vegas. Here at Fun Flower Facts, a humble flower blog who wants to know everything related to flowers, we found out what happened in Las Vegas from June 28th to July 2nd, 2013!
The American Institute of Floral Design (AIFD) hosted yet another successful symposium (a fancy word for conference) at the Paris Hotel and Casio in Las Vegas, Nevada with the theme of “Passion.” Talented floral designers from around the world came together to share design ideas and inspiration, and of course, to have a good time! After all, they were in Sin City!
Passionate floral designers took part in the four day symposium to participate in awe-inspiring stage presentations, celebratory dinners, a floral expo with industry suppliers, a community service project, and other events. And of course, there many beautiful and extravagant floral arrangements to feast your eyes on!
Here are some photos from the 2013 AIFD “Passion” Symposium:
As well, the AIFD also inducted 12 new members into its organization, including Grower Direct Fresh Cut Flowers’ Floral Design Educator, Iris Salmon! The AIFD distinction is considered the highest honour for floral designers. Membership into AIFD is selective and candidates must fulfill specific qualifications and demonstrate their advanced floral design skills to a panel of judges.
And in case you were wondering, the theme for next year’s event is “Transition Transformation” and will be held in Chicago, Illinois from July 3-7th, 2014.
