National Floriculture Forum Sets 2017 Meeting

The National Floriculture Forum (NFF) has announced its 2017 annual meeting will take place in Philadelphia March 17-19, 2017, during the Philadelphia International Flower Show.

Participants of the meeting will attend the show and tour Longwood Gardens, and gather to discuss increasing the younger generation’s involvement in production and academic floriculture and horticulture.

Members of the Young Professionals Council (YPC) will also attend and discuss their work on this topic.

“This year’s event is focused on ways to get the younger generation involved, and I am enthusiastic because the current generation has a wealth of knowledge to be shared,” said Krystal Snyder, 2017 NFF event coordinator and YPC member.

The NFF is an annual educational meeting for greenhouse growers, industry leaders, university faculty, graduate students and government scientists from academic institutions, governmental agencies and the greenhouse industry.

The event gives participants an opportunity to debate the future of floriculture against the dramatic changes in the global business environment.

Its objectives are to address floriculture industry issues, form relationships and improve communication within the industry to share information.

Tours, seminars, posters and discussions during the NFF meetings allow the attendees  to discuss strategies to improve the image and prestige of floriculture.

The NFF recently partnered with the American Floral Endowment (AFE) to permanently host all NFF information on the endowment’s website about the group and its annual meetings. Links to current and past events, registration information, schedules, photos and a detailed history of the NFF are all featured on AFE’s website at www.endowment.org/nff.

AFE also collaborated with the NFF to create a new logo for them (see image above).
