The Fall Event 2021  |  Wilmington, DE  |  Aug 30 - Sep 02


The Fall Event 2021 Registration is closed and we are SOLD OUT.

NOTE:  Coming out of the pandemic requires some additional planning and we have a limited number of seats available. This is the first in-person event for more than a year and we expect larger than normal participation. With this in mind, we encourage you to register early... Reserve your seat today!

As state mandates relax we will continue to closely work with Hotel Du Point and keep you up-to-date as requirements change. In Delaware, the Governor recently signed the 29th modification to the COVID-19 declaration eliminating social distancing requirements and removing the mask mandate effective May 21. Delawareans and visitors are requested to follow social distancing and masking guidance issued last week by the CDC. Pennsylvania has announced they will lift their coronavirus mitigation measures by Memorial Day. Philadelphia, however, is not yet set to follow suit.

We'll be Raising the Bar at The Fall Event 2021 in Wilmington, Delaware... where progressive garden retailers, service providers and vendors network, exchange ideas, collaborate, and create new synergies to fuel success. Plus, we'll be touring some of the area’s best garden centers and experience the nation's top public garden – and much more!

The Fall Event is all about sharing, learning and growing... packed full of incredible opportunities for progressive garden retailers, consultants and vendors 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 in your company, there’s still something to learn.

There are countless reasons why you should attend The Fall Event, but we’ve managed to narrow it down to five: 

1. Connect with your peers. We know you’ve heard it all before, but networking is a huge part of your success. Meeting face-to-face with your peers provides an opportunity to collaborate, hear new ideas, and tap into a wealth of knowledge. You can find a mentor – or become one, and develop relationships that can last a lifetime. The Fall Event provides plenty of white space to engage and connect.

2. Collaborate with our Service Providers. Our Service Providers are industry experts and solution providers who truly know what is happening in the world of garden center retailing – and they have answers to your questions. The Fall Event provides an opportunity for you to discuss your biggest challenges, explore new ideas, and learn what’s working for others.

3. Learn from our Speakers and Facilitators. Our speakers are leaders in the industry – thought leaders that embody The Group spirit of ingenuity and entrepreneurial drive that will introduce you to new concepts and open your mind to new ways of thinking about how you do business every day.

4. Engage with our Sponsors. Our sponsors are premier industry suppliers of the products and services you need to run a successful garden center. Invest some time in engaging with them during breaks. See their newest products and spend some one-on-one time discovering what’s new and developing profitable business partnerships. 

5. Relax and have fun. The Fall Event is a lot of learning packed into a short amount of time, but we always make time for some relaxation and fun! We recommend coming a few days early or stay over to explore on your own. You’ll go home re-energized and ready to apply all that you’ve learned to make your center more successful!

We look forward to seeing you in-person in Wilmington, Delaware, August 30 - September 2, 2021!
