Attendee Testimonials




I have always wanted a meeting focused on floral wholesalers in Miami that would take place every year. It's good for wholesalers and good for the industry. This [is now] accomplished with the WF&FSA Conference, I whole-heartedly support this Conference. WF&FSA is a non-profit organization run by wholesalers and their suppliers. I urge the industry to get behind this Conference and make it happen BIG because it's here to stay.
