Want to learn more about what consumers bought for Mother’s Day – and what their future flower buying plans are? SAF will break down the full results of the IPSOS survey – and how the industry can capitalize on those results.
Hear from a panel of leading growers, wholesalers and retailers on questions like: Why can’t I seem to source the fresh product that I need? Will we have enough product for Mother’s Day? How long will this last? Now that events are coming back, how will I meet the specialty product demands of my clients?
An eye-catching window display, standout customer care, and well thought out merchandising are still staples of the retail experience, some florists say, and set their small businesses apart from online retailers and big box stores. Those back-to-the-basic methods are driving sales, increasing foot traffic, and harnessing the shop local movement this holiday season as consumers eagerly return to in-person shopping.
Each year, SAF recognizes the floral community’s best and brightest with a wide range of honors that acknowledge hard work and dedication to the industry.
