March 12-17, 2020

TREND SUMMIT 2020 is a 6-day event focused around the idea that an assembled group of forward thinking flower professionals - including farmers, wholesalers, retail florists, wedding & event florists, mass marketers, educators, manufacturers and flower enthusiasts, can positively contribute to the future flower trends. We have brought together a lineup of respected speakers, educators and influencers who together will not only provide their insight into Trends, but will lead the larger discussions in the conference alongside participants throughout the week.  

Along with Hitomi, Gregor, Holly, Sue and Françoise - you, the participants will play key roles in the conversation on how we can move trend forward in 2020 and beyond in an ever-changing Green Profession.

Whether you choose to come for the entire summit, or for one or more exciting individual sessions, we know that you will come away from Vancouver invigorated and ready to take your business to confidently reflect your up-to-date insight into the global and lifestyle trends.

We hope to see you next March!!
