The Garden Center Group has one major event each year. It's called...
The Fall Event
It was just a matter of time before we all realized that the traditional industry meetings that take place every Winter needed a change. Winter is not the best time to consider new concepts, create plans for Spring or make serious buying decisions. Between an over-load of association seminars and almost weekly trade shows, who has time to put anything you might see or hear in place before Spring? That's why The Group has our big meeting in the Fall, so there's plenty of time to implement new ideas before Spring arrives.
This major Event, held in various parts of the country, provides you with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with other Group centers; talk with Service Providers and see the newest products from Vendors. Workshops and seminars conducted by professionals from all facets of business are short on theory and long on ideas and processes you can put right to work to help your center improve.
The Fall Event is the perfect forum where progressive garden retailers, consultants and vendors come together to network, exchange ideas, collaborate and create new synergies to fuel success. No matter how long you’ve been in retail or what position you hold at your company, chances are there is still something you need to learn. There are countless reasons why you should attend The Fall Event, but we’ve managed to narrow it down to five:
The Fall Event 2016... Houston, Texas!
It was WOW. A large number of participants said "This was the Best Fall Event ever!"
A sponsor said "This is the very best event in the industry today for the retailers and suppliers who are fortunate enough to be invited. The synergies and learning are the best."
So, what do we do to top this?
