With great interest in the success of our retail partners and the industry as a whole, we have made it a focus to be a leading advocate for education and training – as illustrated in the picture of our receiving the first-ever national award to a Wholesaler from Teleflora in 2006; Kansas State Florist Association’s first Award of Merit in 1999 and the same for the Grater Wichita Floral Association in 1996.
Valley continues to set the standards in training and education and many of its participants are featured in national publications. Ask anyone who has attended Valley Floral events and you’ll see why we are nationally recognized for our commitment to education.
Absolutely Flowers of Hutchinson, Kansas was nominated by Valley Floral and won the Outstanding Merchandising and Display Award in 2008 in the Retailer Florist of the Year competition. Just one of many reasons to continue education at Valley Floral.
