So, Vision is fast creeping up on us for another year so I thought I’d take ten minutes and let you all know what’s happening, what you can expect, why we are going and most importantly what you can get out of the weekend.

What is BFA Vision?

Vision is the largest trade conference in the UK & is run by The British Florist Association.

Date: 13th & 14th April 2019 | Venue: Leicester Marriot LE19 1SW

Why should you go to Vision?

This is your chance to speak to other florists in the industry and listen to experts whom will discuss the following issues;

1. Brexit and how it will affect the florist industry
2. The best of British Suppliers
3. How to grow your business
4. How to make your business more profitable
5. Eco-floristry & MailChimp (email marketing) workshops
6. The BFA & how it can aid your business
7. Telling your business story through Social media
8. Best practice

Why is Strelitzia going to Vision?

We go to Vision every year. It’s a great opportunity for us to keep up to date with what is happening in the industry, say hello to our current customers and this year it will give us a chance to show off our new cloud based system!

Although we’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little excited about Saturday night’s drinks.

What can you get out of Vision?
Keep you up to date on how external issues, like Brexit, may affect your business
Help you network and gain support from other florists just like you.
Give you fresh ideas on how to run your business.
Practical ideas on how to market your business.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

GDPR Advice


The information and advice available on the GDPR legal requirements coming into play on the 25th May 2018 is enough to make your head spin.

For those of you that don’t know, the GDPR is regulations on how you collect, store and use your customer data. It’s important to note that this is not a new data protection obligation. It replaces and mirrors the previous requirement to have ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’ under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the 1998 Act).

GDPR Compliance


As I’m sure you are all aware, there is new legislation coming into action next month called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We’ve had a lot of questions about this and hope we can reassure everybody that Strelitzia will be fully compliant. For extra clarification we have explained in more detail below why Strelitzia needs to comply and what we have done to ensure we comply.

It’s the news you’ve all been waiting for… Strelitzia is relaunching late Summer 2018 with brand new software on the cloud!

Strelitzia will be accessible anytime, anywhere and on any device

We will be fully compatible with Apple products, meaning no more clunky Parallels.. phew…

The software will have a new modern look and feel, while still being super easy to use

We’re got a pile of new features that we’re so excited to be sharing with you over the coming weeks and months, so keep a look out for update emails

Important Update for Users


As many of you know, we have been in talks with Florismart regarding a collaboration between the two companies for some time now.

Due to differing priorities, Strelitzia’s Board of Directors have come to the regrettable decision that the company should carry on without Florismart. This is within the best interest of the software, and you, our customers.

It has been a hard decision, but one that we feel is right, and we are now putting everything into rebuilding Strelitzia so that it will be on the cloud, and encompass many new features that you are asking for. We will update you in the New Year as to a time-scale for this.

Mark and Katie are now working entirely for Strelitzia, with Matt here for help and support when you need him.

Thank you for your continued support, and if we don’t speak to you soon, good luck with Christmas and we hope you get a good rest when it’s all over! Please don’t hesitate to send us an email at or give the office a call on 01325 722398 if you have any questions.
