QIDA were treated last week to a wonderful evening at the newly renovated showroom of Swann Agencies based in Coorparoo, Brisbane. Swann Agencies was established in 1944 by the Swann family and house an extensive range of decorative accessories and floristry. Whether you’re looking for artificial plants, gift boxes, baskets or vases, they’re likely to have it. In 2002, current owners, John and Rosalie, purchased Swann Agenciues from the Swann family and remain heavily involved while preparing the next generation to take the reins. Elise (daughter and Operations Manager) and Ross (Nephew and Sales Manager) are well versed in the business of artificial flora after growing up with it.
