The history of the FLOREX show is intertwined with the growth of the FSDA and the inception of the Florida Federation of Stamp Clubs. Unfortunately the end of the old FLOREX show is also tied directly to the collapse of the Florida Federation of Stamp Clubs.

During the 50 years from 1949 to 1999 FLOREX was held in many different venues and run by a small army of devoted followers. The Philatelic Community salutes the efforts of everyone involved, their countless hours of work have been appreciated and noted by successive generations.

A special thanks and acknowledgement is made to Walt Parker for preserving the detailed history of the early FLOREX events. In addition, a note of gratitude is given to A. Stephen Patrick for his time and effort in putting this brief overview together and to E.T. Reeder for his editing and historical insight.
