Agriflor, a biannual international floriculture trade show, ran October 5 through 7, at the Centro de Exposiciones in Quito, Ecuador.

Canadian Florist columnist Neville MacKay, CAFA, PFCI, made the 5,000-mile trip to attend Agriflor in Quito, Ecuador.

Almost 150 exhibitors from Ecuador and 17 other countries displayed their products in the 59,000-square-foot exhibit space for more than 1,000 international flower buyers at the three-day show that included competitions for breeders and growers.

Organizers reported a 20% jump in attendance, which they attributed to a new, centrally located venue within walking distance of many attendees’ hotels. Previously, Agriflor was held 45 minutes outside of the city.

In conjunction with the event, many flower farmers welcomed visitors on tours of their operations.
