Last year, Nursery Retailer and Garden Chic magazines launched the Independent Garden Center Show, devoted exclusively to garden center products and experts. It was a first-rate show with a large collection of unusual, high quality merchandise on display.
This year’s show runs from Tuesday, August 19 through Thursday, August 21 at the Chicago Navy Pier, and I’m looking forward to attending.
In addition to the exhibit hall, two full days of lectures are also offered. Many topics are specific to garden centers, but quite a few deal with trends, markets, organics, and other topics of equal interest to catalogers and online marketers.
Please let me know if you plan to attend the show. I’d love to meet!
