Throughout the years, thousands of floral industry experts have participated in the Northeast Floral Expo - whether as an attendee, artist, volunteer, vendor, educator or student; every person played an important role in the success of CFA's annual convention. In life, we are all faced with difficult decisions -- recently, The Board of Directors of CFA was faced with such a decision.
The Northeast Floral Expo will not be produced in 2018.
There are many contributing factors, but the primary reason is there just aren't enough volunteers to help produce NEFE. Essentially, a team of about 20 volunteers are needed for about 4-6 months to make the event happen! With so many changes within our industry over the years, the opportunity for people to leave their stores and volunteer has become nearly impossible.
To the SPONSORS, SUPPORTERS and ATTENDEES of The Northeast Floral Expo, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
This is not "Goodbye" who knows what the future may hold. But until then, we focus on the wonderful memories we all have experienced at NEFE throughout the years -- the education, the shows, dinners and most importantly the friendships and relationships that blossomed because of The Northeast Floral Expo.
The Board of CFA is busy planing other wonderful events including:
- Spring / Summer Bus & Buying Trip
- Fall Design Show
- Educational classes held throughout the state
- and much more...
