The 37th World Flower Council Summit (WFCS), centered around the theme “Vietnam – Blooming with Timeless Charm”, has successfully drawn over 500 flower professionals hailing from 18 countries and territories. This year’s remarkable event is jointly organized by the World Flower Council and Da Lat University, scheduled to take place from September 8 to 12. Numerous engaging activities, including WFC member delegate meetings and workshops on fruit, vegetable, and flower design, have been arranged for the participants to actively participate in. The primary objective of this summit is to pay tribute to the value of flowers and the flower industry, while also disseminating a message of peace through the sharing of love and knowledge in the floral community.

The WFCS initially began in Japan in 1983, with a mission to promote world peace by showcasing the beauty of flowers. It serves as a platform for delegates to exchange innovative design techniques and ideas with their counterparts from all around the globe, as well as to gain insights into the latest advancements in flower care and handling methods.
