SAF One Day Profit Blast - Philadelphia

Mar 25th - All Day
Hotel ML - 915 Route 73 Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054

SAF's 1-Day Profit Blast is an exciting format that was very successful in 2016 and SAF is happy to announce the first session for 2017 will be held in the greater Philadelphia area.

The idea behind the Profit Blast format is to provide florists with great educational content - from design to business to tech -  in a very concentrated manner. The one day format is ideal for florists that can't be away from their flower shops for days at a time. There is also a supplier expo.
