FBD Insurance sponsors Bloom for third consecutive year including €5,000 holiday competition

FBD Insurance is delighted to sponsor Bloom, Ireland’s largest gardening, food and family festival, for the third consecutive year. As a true Irish insurer, FBD is very proud of the event which showcases Irish small businesses and produce on the global stage.

Bloom 2019 takes place in the Phoenix Park, Dublin from Thursday, 30th May to Monday, 3rd June. Bloom has grown year on year and is now a world class show exhibiting world class horticulture and design over a five day period. Bloom has successfully grown awareness of excellent Irish produce and innovation, many of whom are FBD customers.

From spectacular show gardens, to great food and live music there is something at Bloom for all the family. Bloom’s bevy of beautiful show gardens, twenty in total this year, has traditionally been its biggest attraction as designers vie with each other for gold medals and, in particular, for the much-coveted Best in Show award.

In addition to its overall sponsorship, FBD Insurance will also be displaying its own show-garden. Designed by horticulturalist Kevin Dennis, the FBD Insurance Urban Sanctuary Garden incorporates a contemporary urban lifestyle design, aimed at inspiring those living in towns or cities to become more engaged with their outdoor spaces.  

Whether it’s a compact garden, an apartment or an allotment, the FBD Insurance Urban Sanctuary Garden seeks to encourage visitors to realise the full potential of any outdoor area. The FBD garden will feature architectural elements of cutting-edge landscaping, and will offer a space that exudes modernity, diversity, calm and wellbeing. A seasoned Bloom exhibitor,this is Kevin’s fourth year to participate in the famous garden festival, following a three-time gold medal-winning success with large garden entries.

Fiona Muldoon, CEO of FBD Insurance, said: “FBD is delighted to once again sponsor Bloom and celebrate the wonderful creativity and hard work that goes into the festival each year. Bloom has grown into a showcase event for our small business producers who form a core part of our customer base. FBD supports this event in order to help them. The event successfully showcases our world class Irish produce and innovation. This year, FBD’s show-garden encourages visitors to harness the potential of any outdoor green space and highlights the importance of design in turning any small unused space into an outdoor paradise. 

We are also delighted to hold a competition for a holiday worth €5000 available to all visitors to Bloom”.

Kevin Dennis, Horticulturalist and Founder of Cityscape Gardener, added: “I am incredibly proud to be returning to Bord Bia’s Bloom. People living in urban areas have been central to the design of this garden and we hope to encourage visitors to spend more time outdoors while offering a contemporary, therapeutic space in which to relax in.”

FBD Insurance is giving Bloom visitors the chance to enter a competition where one lucky winner will win a holiday voucher worth €5,000.
