2024 NATIONAL FLORICULTURE FORUM | A GATHERING OF FLORICULTURE EXPERTS AND EDUCATORS

“After a pause due to the global pandemic, the 2024 National Floriculture Forum will make an exciting return, bringing together industry leaders, researchers, and students in the spirit of collaboration and innovation that has long defined the floricultural community,” Dr. Jim DelPrince, this year’s conference co-chair, said.
“This event holds great significance as we move forward together, addressing the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, and shaping a bright future for the floriculture industry,” said Dr. Christine Coker, co-chair.
The NFF will be hosted at the Hyatt Biloxi, located at 1150 Beach Blvd. Conference registration is currently open, offering a cost-effective rate of $149 per person. Please note that registration closes on Friday, February 8, 2024.
