History of the Eurofleurs Competition
About every 4 years, Florint organizes the European Championship for Young Florists. The first edition was held in 1998, in Great Britain. Like the famous Europa Cup for senior florists, Eurofleurs stimulates floral craftsmanship and promotes the flower sector to the public. It also functions as a springboard for the participating young designers, helping them to gain experience and the confidence to go on to bigger events in the future.
Eurofleurs 2017 Organisation
The 2017 edition of the European Championship for Young Florists is being organised by the Royal Union of Belgian Florists (KUFB/URFB), the member association of Florint, the International Florist Organisation, in Belgium. Lots of friendly assistance is being provided by the city of Sint-Truiden.
