A total of 43 international garden designers and florists from 24 countries were involved this year, which is the seventh held since 2007.
Putrajaya Corporation president Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat said such a festival was not just a flower exhibition but also created economic opportunities and promoted growth of the flora, landscape and tourism industry. "Floria 2014 is the best branding to raise Putrajaya's name to an international level and hope it will continue to become the best location to hold such an event," he said during the closing of the festival Sunday.
Some 200 local and international operators of the landscape and flower industry took part in the exhibition, demonstration, sales of flowers besides arts and crafts at the carnival.
Until last night, the 2014 Putrajaya Royal Floria recorded more than RM2.1 million through sales of flowers, crafts as well of food and beverages.
