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 25-27, 2017.
WHERE: In the past few years, WINTERGREEN has been held in the convenient city of Duluth. The Infinite Energy Center, formally 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?
The Exhibitor Lounge is hosted by the Athens Georgia Nursery Growers Association. (AGNGA).
NEW THIS YEAR!! The lounge will be an area right on the trade show floor where exhibitors can go to take a break, grab a complimentary snack and drink and get away from the hustle and bustle of the trade show floor. Our very popular lunch program for our exhibitors will move into the lounge this year and we will be providing tables, chairs and even a couch or two for you to eat in peace away from your booth. The space will provide a private get away to recharge and even take a client for a quiet conversation without having to leave the hall.
