This weekend we joined the hardworking members and wonderful volunteers of the North Dakota State Florists' Association (NDSFA) for their 2016 Annual Convention at the Grand Hotel in Minot North Dakota.
The outstanding speakers included Hilde Tredoux of Main Street Floral in Cavalier, Patience Pickner, AIFD, PFCI, SDCF and R. Ace Berry of Florgasm, Ann Jordan and Tim Huckabee of FloralStrategies. It was his first appearance at an NDSFA event and they were kind enough to help him celebrate a recent birthday.
It was great to be joined in the vendor expo by a number of local wholesalers and growers, as well as a few other independent providers of the technical services florists need – things like websites, SEO and order relay. Strider Florist 2.0 and Flower Shop Network are great supporters of the floral industry and we're honored to join them at events like this.
There is already a tentative date for the 2017 NDSFA convention in our floral industry event guide.
