Hello CPA Members!
The Del Mar show is already upon us and right after that is the World Flower EXPO in Los Angeles. See below for more.
Del Mar Show Starts Friday!
California Protea Association will be operating a booth at the Del Mar Fair Home and Garden show again this weekend - March 4,5 & 6. As you know this show is our largest revenue event which allows the association to continue providing benefits to our members. We are planning to have live plants, Protea arrangements, cut flowers, and have a table to build bouquets like we last year. Some members have already signed up to help at the booth, but there is still time for you to join us. Please contact Bill Boyett: 760-215-0498
CPA to Exhibit at EXPO
March 9, 10, 11
This is an industry-only event that brings growers and buyers together. The CPA booth will be right across from the Resendiz Brothers booth at a great location near the front entrance. Instead of selling plants to raise money for the association, it is an opportunity to raise awareness and market Protea to the professional buyers in the floral space. Our booth will have materials about Protea and the Association as well as gorgeous sample product (beautiful Protea stems). There are 2 ways you can help:
1. Volunteer to man the booth and talk about Protea
2. Donate Protea stems to display
To contribute in either way, please contact Diana Roy at Resendiz Brothers: 760-731-3305
