Join Longwood for an exciting opportunity to see the greatest floral designers in the world as they come together in Washington, DC for the annual American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) Symposium. This event will include an exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes at the symposium before the designs reach the main stage. Holly Chapple is the headliner and she will present a lively and unforgettable demonstration of hottest wedding trends. Learn from experts throughout the day with the opportunity to choose between various concurrent demonstrations. Cap off your day with the main stage program featuring top designers from around the world. This trip is for designers of all skills and abilities, but does not include a hands-on component. After a day at the symposium, you may be inspired to test for AIFD accreditation, and perhaps one day you’ll be on the main stage!
