50 Cool Products on Display at the 2017 IGC Show

The IGC show, held at the Navy Pier in Chicago August 15-17, is one of the largest retail shows around for independent garden center owners and managers. The three-day tradeshow and conference included interactive educational sessions and a networking lounge on the show floor where attendees could talk shop and trade ideas. Wednesday morning, keynote speaker Robert O’Neill, a former Navy Seal Team Six leader, encouraged a packed room to “Never Quit,” as he shared what he learned during Navy Seal training and while carrying out the mission to shoot and kill Osama Bin Laden. The tradeshow floor included plenty of new vendors and new products for attendees to get excited about, as well as great displays packed with plants and every garden retail product imaginable. Here is a sampling of some of the cool products on display at the show.
