The Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS), now in its 44th year, has announced a change of date for its January 2015 trade show event. Due to scheduling concerns, MANTS will swap show dates with North Carolina-based Green & Growin’ Show for January 2015 only.
In 2015, MANTS will be held January 14-16 at its home venue, the Baltimore Convention Center. MANTS, one of the largest trade shows serving the horticulture industry, is sponsored by the state Nursery and Landscape Associations of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, and brings together 1,000 vendors of top industry products from across the U.S. and internationally.
“These shows collectively support our industry and the fact that the Green & Growin’ Show and MANTS are able to work together is good for our exhibitors, good for our attendees and good for the industry,” says MANTS Executive Vice President Vanessa Finney.
The Green & Growin’ Show will be held January 5-9, 2015, in Greensboro, N.C. Educational sessions will be January 5-7, 2015, at the Sheraton Four Seasons Hotel. The trade show will take place January 8-9, 2015, at the Greensboro Coliseum. Hosted by the North Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association (NCNLA), Green & Growin’ provides an important marketplace for the nursery and landscape industry and educational seminars for landscape, nursery, garden center, irrigation, arborist and turf maintenance professionals.
“As show managers, we communicate and work hard to be respectful of each other’s dates,” says NCNLA Executive Director Ross Williams. “The most challenging part is the logistics and we are fortunate to have supportive regional partners with whom we can work”.
