I am no stranger to a trade show. This month I got the opportunity to go to the World Floral Expo right here in Los Angeles. Not only was this show in my city, it was unlike any show I have been to in the past. I am used to going to wedding and event trade shows but this was all about flowers. Growers from both California and South America as well as the rest of the world, come out and display the cream of their crop. It was really cool to walk the tradeshow floor and see nothing but stunning flowers wall to wall. This was also a great opportunity to meet some of the growers we work with. You see the names on the boxes and on the sleeves of bunches but to meet someone face to face and have the chance to have a conversation and learn about their product was very interesting. I got to hear how certain farms produce their product as well as the little things that separate their product from the rest. It could be something as little as a different mineral in the soil that could make the color more vibrant or a slight temperature change to bump up production. It’s crazy to think how the tiniest detail can change something so much and create such a different product.
Enough about the show, lets get to what we really want, pictures!
