MANTS changes dates for 2015


The Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS), the premier green industry marketplace now in its 44th year, today 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 from January 14 to 16 at its home venue, the Baltimore Convention Center. MANTS, widely known as The Masterpiece of Trade ShowsT, 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 United States and internationally. As one of the largest trade shows serving the horticulture industry, MANTS means business and is the premier event to buy, shop, meet, see and be seen every January.

"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," said MANTS Executive Vice President Vanessa Finney.

The Green & Growin' Show will be held January 5 to 9, 2015, in Greensboro, NC.  Educational sessions will be January 5 to 7, 2015, at the Sheraton Four Seasons Hotel and the trade show January 8 to 9, 2015, at the Greensboro Coliseum. Hosted by the North Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association (NCNLA), Green & Growin' is the leading green industry show in the southeast, providing 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," said 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".
