Fresh dates announced for Flower & Perishable Logistics Africa conferences. FLA and PLA to take plac
Fresh dates have been announced for Flower Logistics Africa (FLA) and Perishable Logistics Africa (PLA) conferences. While FLA is rescheduled for November 22, PLA will take place on November 23. The changes have been necessitated by requests from several stakeholders on account of the presidential re-election in Kenya scheduled for October 26, which is very close to October 11 & 12, the original dates for FLA and PLA respectively
After taking into account various aspects and considering the potential vulnerabilities involved in the pre and post presidential reelection in Kenya, the organisers in consultation with sponsors and partners decided to postpone the events to November 22 and 23.  There is no change in the venue. They will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Nairobi.
While FLA returns to the Kenyan capital city for its second edition, PLA makes its debut this year as a separate logistics conference, taking place at the same venue, for Africa’s perishable exporters.
With “Enhancing Africa’s flower power through better logistics” as the core theme for FLA 2017 and “Perishables: Creating Africa’s Future Logistics Grid” as the theme for the PLA 2017; the events have already garnered support from global organizations as key sponsors of the event.
FLA 2017 has received industry support from Kenya Flower Council (KFC), Cool Chain Association (CCA), Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service (KEPHIS), Ethiopian Horticulture Producer Exporters Association (EHPEA), Union Fleurs – the international flower trade association, The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH).
