Slow Flowers SUMMIT 2018


The SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT, a one-day conference set for Friday, June 29, 2018, is scheduled to coincide with the fourth annual American Flowers Week (June 28-July 4, 2018).

Called a “TED Talk for Flower Lovers,” the SUMMIT is a one-day lecture series for 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 second annual SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT takes place in Washington, D.C., and we’re so excited to co-locate with the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) 2018 Symposium.

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.
