Are You Effectively Marketing to the Largest Population Base in the Southeast? 


GGIA's Wintergreen Conference (January 25-27, 2017) is the only multi-day green industry tradeshow and conference in Georgia and the best way to market your products in the booming Metro-Atlanta market. 



Why Georgia and Metro-Atlanta? 


Population: over 5 million in the metro area

Licensed Plant Dealers: 2,199

Licensed Growers: 774 

Licensed Landscapers: 546

Licensed Pesticide Applicators: 3,800 


Wintergreen is Growing! Building on previous successes and a well deserved reputation for true southern hospitality, Wintergreen booths are selling at a record pace. Add in amenities like the Exhibitor's Lounge and Complimentary Exhibitor Lunches along with the best move in crew in the business and its easy to see why Wintergreen is growing. 


Attendance in 2016 was up over 20% and we are doing even more to bring potential buyers to your booth in 2017. Enhanced marketing, new attractions and expanded education classes are designed to attract landscape contractors, retail buyers, re-wholesalers and decision makers who write the orders you're looking for.  


Don't just take our word for it.  Jutt Howard, from North Georgia Turf says: "Wintergreen is different from other industry events because attendees really do come for the purpose of finding a supplier.  As a sod producer who relies heavily on the landscape contractor market, Wintergreen has consistently been the best tradeshow to get in front of new customers."


From a value standpoint, Wintergreen gives you maximum return on your investment.  A wide variety of economical lodging and food options are available just minutes from the venue. Located just off I-85, north of Atlanta, getting there is easy. And the secure on-site marshaling yard is a safe spot for your trucks and trailers.
