Swann Agencies has been chosen as the Platinum Sponsor for the inaugural Australian Flower Festival, as well as the preferred Floral Sundries Supplier for the event, it’s Demonstrations and Competitions. The festival is being held at the South Bank TAFE Campus (Brisbane) on Monday 18th September to coincide with the Australian Flowers Week (16-24th September).
The Australia Flower Festival is expected to attract over 250 professional florists with open areas such as floristry competitions and demonstration areas, to the public as a promotional exercise for the industry. The festival will not be a traditional conference forum, and will have a fresh, young, new and fun “musical festival” design to attract and delight florists from all around Australian. The event will run four concurrent demonstrations, streams of speakers, trade display and fun competitions throughout the day – finishing with a cocktail After Party.
South Bank TAFE’s Campus is providing the event venue with indoor and outdoor spaces which hosts different activities throughout the day, making it ideal for this type of festival. The organisers have worked extremely hard in finalising an amazing line-up of speakers who will be discussing issues affecting Australian Florist’s livelihoods and futures. This will include presentations that assist them with business management (Business Stage); integrating technology into business (Tech Stage) and improving their product offering by learning new techniques in Floristry (Inspiration Stage). The Festival will also have competitions running concurrently (Competition Stage) with a schedule that will inspire attendees and will also demonstrate the professionalism of the competitors involved.
