This year, California hosted the World Floral Expo ( in the Los Angeles Convention Center. 

According to show organizers, “…the city has been chosen for its proximity to LA International airport (LAX) and the Californian flower growers’ area, who are expected to have a strong presence in the upcoming trade show. Especially for this reason the outcome of the show may lead to unexpected positive developments, such as a sales boost of Californian grown cut flowers and potted plants.”
