Established in 1965, the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) is the floral industry’s leading non-profit organization, dedicated to establishing and recognizing the highest standard of professional floral design.
Every year the AIFD holds a National Symposium which is considered to be the most important design education event in the floral industry and as such attracts designers, educators and interested individuals from all corners of the world.
This year’s event, named ‘Passion’, was held in Las Vegas and attended by our very own Karen Barnes. It proved to be an action-packed extravaganza as more than 1,000 floral design artists converged to see creative designs, entertaining events and inspiration like none other.
Here’s a snap shot of just some of the incredible displays from the event.
