Why Attend WINTERgreen:

The 5 Ws of WINTERgreen:

Whenever someone tries to make a decision, they always ask themselves five basic questions: who, what, when, where and why. In fact, you're probably wondering those questions about WINTERgreen , especially if you have never been to our show. We have taken the liberty to answer those questions for you.


WHO: Who attends WINTERgreen ? Everyone who's anyone in the agriculture/horticulture world. We have people from all over the southeast and even a few from the northeast regions of the United States to exhibit in our large but laid-back trade show or to take our educational classes taught by leaders in the industry.


WHAT: What is WINTERgreen all about? Giving YOU, the consumer, the best, most efficient all-in-one service you need. We offer educational courses with pesticide recertification credits, training and review for various tests and certifications in the industry, and a trade show with a chance to buy or sell the leading products of the south.


WHEN: WINTERgreen occurs every year at the end of January. This upcoming year, WINTERgreen is going to be held January 22-24, 2014.


WHERE: In the past few years, WINTERgreen has been held in the convenient city of Duluth. The Gwinnett Center (the convention center we use to host our show) has a bigger trade show floor and more rooms for classes, all for the convenience of our exhibitors and attendees.


WHY: Why attend WINTERgreen ? For exhibitors, WINTERgreen is the most profitable time of the year. For attendees, it has one of the most affordable and extensive class selections in the South.


Now, ask yourself this: WHY NOT ATTEND WINTERGREEN?

Everyone knows that any tradeshow is no cheap venture. You have to pay for a hotel, pay for admission, and pay for products. You may leave the show completely satisfied and exhilarated from your day's work, but your wallet is crying. GGIA and the 2014 WINTERgreen Tradeshow vendors would like to give you something back.

This year, GGIA is starting the "Book it Now Sweepstakes." Essentially, as a buyer, you can go to the booths of the PARTICIPATING VENDORS, and buy their products!
