In the FDF World, there will be first-class creative fireworks from the best-known greats in the floristry world: Alex Choi from Korea, the reigning World Champion of Florists, and Stein Are Hansen from Norway, the World Champion of Florists in 2010, will appear together in a high-ranking floristry show for the first time. During this stage show of superlatives, top-class European floristry will encounter leading Asian floral design. The Floral Fundamentals Family Show will introduce a new generation of florists who present their floral works in the social media with great passion. With their flowery displays, these young designers reach followers and enthusiastic fans everywhere in the world. On the FDF show stage, they will present how they use flowers and plants as a medium for successful self-representation and put the focus on modern online communication. With their "Grand Opening", Belgian and international flower artists will enchant the visitors and, at IPM ESSEN 2018, will give an initial foretaste of the world-famous "Fleuramour" floristry festival in Belgium. Young novice florists will rock the stage during the Flower Battle which will give its premiere on the IPM stage in Essen: Within minutes, they will create flowery arrangements off the cuff.
