From Flowers to Freezers


Redefining the concept of “all access,” one badge will allow industry professionals to attend FMI Connect, United Fresh 2016, the International Floriculture Expo and Global Cold Chain Expo 2016.

Hoping to spur growth stemming from consumers’ penchant for fresh blooms (no pun intended), floral professionals will gather to share ideas and learn new insights at the International Floriculture Expo (IFE), set for June 21–22 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Produced by Diversified Communications, IFE is the leading trade exposition and educational conference for mass-market retailers, supermarkets, garden centers, retail florists, growers, nurseries, event floral designers and other retailers of floral and foliage products.

At this event, those in the floral industry will discover new products, source suppliers, learn about trends and industry news, and network with one another.

New this year to the conveniently co-located industry events in the country’s heartland is Global Cold Chain Expo 2016, designed to provide a one-stop-shop for innovations across the global food industry cold chain. Among other features, the expo will highlight the tools, technologies and services used and needed by those throughout the cold chain, as well as offering seminars led by innovators and experts.
