Eurofleurs 2017 – the European Championship for Young Florists –will be held on 17/18th September in Belgium where 10 of the continent’s most talented junior florists - including the UK's representative Louisa Cooper (pictured below) - will go head to head to decide who the true champ is.
Held 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.
The 2017 edition of the European Championship for Young Florists is being organised by the Royal Union of Belgian Florists (KUFB/URFB) along with lots of friendly assistance being provided by the city of Sint-Truiden and local sponsors. The setting is a monumental venue, the 13th-century Minderbroedersite monastery, in the city of Sint-Truiden and tickets are a mere 5 euros.
