Two associations in the floral industry are celebrating significant anniversaries in 2013.
Asocolflores, the Association of Colombian Flower Exporters celebrated the 40th anniversary of its founding on Jan. 26. The association was started in 1973 by a small group of visionary businessmen who set out to represent and defend the interests of the Colombian floral industry. The 12th installment of its biennial trade show, Proflora, will take place Oct. 2-4, 2013 in Bogotá.
The Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ASCFG) was formed in 1988 to unite and educate field and greenhouse cut flower growers. Today, it connects more than 600 members across the United States and in Canada, the Netherlands and Northern Ireland. The association will mark its 25th anniversary with four meetings this year.
