019 was an interesting and meaningful year for the Floriculture Association (Singapore).In the month of May, FAS attended the 4th Annual Council of Asia Flower Exhibition (C.A.F.E) meeting held in Goyang City, Korea. This meeting was proudly attended by 10 South East Asian countries; Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, Bhutan, South Korea and Singapore (FAS). Through this meeting, we will be expecting more collaborations for Floral Exhibition in Singapore as well as overseas.
In July, FAS members enjoyed a floral workshop that was held at Tropifame Studio. Special guest, Mr. George Fum was invited to do an exclusive floral demonstration during the workshop. It was also great to see many non-members turn up for the workshop, creating more friendship through flowers. We will be looking forward to organizing more of these workshops for our members, as well as all Singaporeans and overseas individuals who share the same interest.
Likewise, Tropifame Floral Design School Pte Ltd (Tropifame) have been actively engaged in offering Professional Floral Courses and mini workshops for Public and Private schools across Singapore. Please visit them at their new webpage www.tropifame.school. FAS is grateful to be the supporting association for Tropifame.
We would also like to use this opportunity to thank all our members for their continuous support and efforts given to Floriculture Association Singapore. We will continue to support floral interests locally and overseas.
