Dallas – World Floral Expo (WFE) is traditionally characterized by in between 75 and 100 international and US based mainly flower growing exhibitors and by in between 500 and 750 US qualified flower buyers. A high end trade show, especially set up for the US fresh cut flower Industry. Organized since 1999, when it was held for the first time in New York City, the trade show has been travelling around the USA for 21 years and held 19 times. Two editions less, i.e. the one of 2001 that didn’t take place due to 9/11 happening during build up of the show at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, and the 2002 edition not taking place because of the aftermath of 9/11.
So far 51 exhibitors, mainly growers from California, Colombia, Ecuador and Kenya, have signed up for this year’s edition of World Floral Expo. A total of around 75 to 80 companies are expected to exhibit by the time the show opens on March 20. Every year a different US city is chosen and this year it is Dallas, Texas, which will be the next destination. Expectations are set high, as the show will be held for the very first time in this rich and wealthy US state Texas. The organizers therefore expect flower buyers to drive and fly in as well from surrounding states, such as Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
