The SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT is a conference for creative professionals, thought leaders and pioneering voices in the progressive American-grown floral community.
Designed to stimulate curiosity, examine conventional assumptions and explore conscious and ethical practices in the floral industry, the Summit agenda asks speakers and audience members alike to inquire, inform, include, instigate and inspire.
Founder of slowflowers.com, Debra Prinzing developed the SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT as an a live, interactive component during American Flowers Week (June 28-July 4). Join SLOW FLOWERS’ doers and thinkers for a day of progressive ideas, connections and inspiration.
