SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT 2019 in Minneapolis-St. Paul!
Friday, June 29th
8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Marriott Wardman Park, 2660 Woodley Rd NW, Washington, DC 20008
Our third annual SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT is set for Minneapolis-St. Paul!
After presenting the Summit as a one-day conference in 2017 and 2018, we are expanding the 2019 Summit to two days to make sure we have one day of sessions and one day of on-site flower touring. The Summit is a live and interactive component at the heart of American Flowers Week (June 28-July 4, 2019) — our fifth annual domestic floral promotion campaign!
Called a “TED Talk for Flower Lovers,” the SUMMIT draws creative professionals, thought leaders and pioneering voices in the progressive American-grown floral community.
The SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT stimulates curiosity as our presenters inquire, inform, include, instigate and inspire. We aspire to examine conventional assumptions and explore conscious and ethical practices in the floral industry, while stretching our vocabulary as artists and creatives.
The third annual SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT takes place in Minneapolis-St. Paul, and we’re so excited to co-host the Summit with the Twin Cities Flower Exchange, a dynamic new farm-to-florist wholesale hub.
Debra Prinzing developed the SUMMIT as an alternative to conventional floral conferences, a new “live” component to the virtual American Flowers Week campaign. AFW devotes a week of activity via regional events and social media platforms to promote domestic flowers, raise consumer awareness and unite America’s flower farmers with the U.S. floral industry.
