We are excited to announce that we’re going to be at the SEGreen Conference at The Classic Center in Athens, Georgia on August 31 – September 1, 2016.
SEGreen is a new event that has been created by the Southern Nursery Association. The SNA has a history that goes back to 1899! Ultimately they have a goal of improving the horticultural industry. They work with growers and nurseries across the southeast United States. This conference will have both a marketplace and an educational component.
- The Marketplace will allow attendees to view ornamental trees and shrubs, color, equipment and related landscape and outdoor living products, garden gifts and accessories, seasonal products, and more. (that’s where will be… More about us in a minute)
- The Educational tracks are geared towards growers, landscapers and retailers. You’ll gain insight on the best new plants and products, economics, trends, IPM, equipment safety, ways to build business and increase profit, and solutions to some of your toughest issues – while connecting with the top industry professionals from across the Southeast.
Now, how does Howard Brothers see this conference as a relevant place for us?
Well, obviously both landscapers and growers have been our customers for years. Many of us go back 30, 40, 50+ years in the northeast Georgia area. The relationship between landscapers and growers has always been strong, but recently we’ve seen many newer/younger landscapers jumping into business, and they often find it difficult to navigate WHERE to source plants for installation and projects.
We think SEGreen Landscape Conference provides a perfect platform for our landscape pros to gain valuable knowledge and expand their business!
Landscape Architects, Landscape Designers, Landscape Installation Contractors, Landscape Maintenance Contractors, Landscape Irrigation Contractors, Urban and Regional Landscape Planners, Erosion and Sediment Control Contractors, Arborists… there’s something for everyone!
Now… of course, you’re not gonna find shrubs and perennials in our booth. We don’t grow plants! But we will have plenty of equipment on site that both landscapers and growers use everyday in their industries.
So, Landscapers, take 5 minutes and read up on SeGreen and see how you can Make More Green in your Wallet.
By the way, while you’re in Athens, you can check out our new store… before we do our remodel 🙂
