If you’ve been thinking about going to the Summer Mailorder Gardening Association conference in Minneapolis (July 15 – 17), pick up the phone and make your reservations now. Our block of rooms is reserved through today and because the hotel is filled with other conferences, any unsold rooms are likely to be snapped up quickly.
It promises to be an outstanding program. Among the speakers are:
* John Kinsella, Managing Director of Terrain, Urban Outfitter’s Garden Lifestyle Center. He’ll be speaking on Cutting Edge Gardening Trends.
* Robyn Waters, former VP of Trend, Design and Product Development for Target, on Creating Products That Customers Will Fall in Love With

* Sundeep Kapur, Online Marketing Strategist, on Creating a Dialog With Your Customers Through Social Networking
Between Round Table Sessions and a panel of past MGA presidents addressing the state of the industry, there will be ample opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences. Social hours and a field trip to renowned wholesaler Bailey Nurseries will provide ample time for networking.
