World Cup History

The world’s biggest and most prestigious floral design competition, which has previously found its home in cities around the globe, is coming to the UK for the very first time in 2023, with Manchester chosen as its host city.  

Launched in 1972, the Interflora World Cup has previously taken place in the likes of Melbourne (2004), Shanghai (2010), Berlin (2015) and Philadelphia (2019), and is a chance for 25 elite florists from across the world to showcase their talent. Not only will the competition itself be a display of skill and artistic design, but for the first time ever Interflora has chosen to open the doors to the general public and turn it into a ‘once in a lifetime event’ for all.  

Interflora prides itself in bringing people together through its network of over 900 local florists across the UK and in over 130 countries, and will be bringing this collaborative ethos to the exciting UK event. In addition to the competition you can expect artisan stalls with food, drink and shopping, as well as workshops, live demonstrations and entertainment.
