2021 is a big year for events worldwide. It is probably as important as last year was radical. After the earthquake that shook the entire planet, considering the new developments and the way the world is going forward, it is most likely that the events are facing an year of changes, challenges, but also opportunities and adventures!
We are now at the very start of the 2021 wedding season and there are certainly a lot of uncertainties, but also new trends and new approaches appearing. Which is always super exciting for the designers and creatives in this business. But how big are those changes going to be? How will the concept of events themselves balance the need for socialising with the must be of the intimacy? How will logistics be handled? How will prices evolve and how will the design style adapt to reflect the new way events will unfold? So many questions and yet they all have the same answer: by bringing creativity into action and working around the concept of integration, there is room for anything to happen!
As opposed to the pre-pandemic year, this time we know things are going to change almost completely, shifting along with the new social trends. It will not only be a new colour of the year or a new style of dress, it will be so much more than that! It will be a change that happens at the very core of the event itself and creativity for all involved will be challenged.
Education, communication, learning are all important adaptability factors in today's market. But INTEGRATION is key, it will truly inspire the future of events and all creatives involved will certainly be implementing the most. one of the most inspiring learnings come from dialogue, from sharing and receiving information.

Designing with flowers is the art and business of communicating emotions. The design displays elements of inspiration from so many other forms of art, it encompasses trends; it challenges us technically, just as it excites the client visually. This is why we believe that all florists who want to expand their creativity, especially if working int he wedding industry, need to experience the Infinite Creative Effect (ICE)! A floral design has to speak of a broader picture then selling the flower itself. It actually speaks of concepts, such as integration and conscious creativity, as the way into the future of design.
This 2-day virtual event offers florists and designers together the opportunity to learn and connect. Exploring the future in this fast-changing world with a conscious creative mindset is vital and a goal for us all.
Don't miss it. Bring your creativity into action!
