The Minnesota Green Expo, the trade show and educational event sponsored by the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA) and the Minnesota Turf and Grounds Foundation (MTGF), has a new name: Northern Green Expo! The annual event will be held January 6-8, 2010 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The new name and logo were adopted to reflect the increased level of regional participation in this show. It also serves to emphasize that the show focuses on the unique challenges and opportunities of green industry professionals who work in the northern climate.
“Over the years, we have continually re-shaped this event to address the evolving needs of green industry professionals and realize that the attraction of the show reaches beyond the borders of Minnesota,” says Bob Fitch, executive director of MNLA.
According to MTGF Executive Director Kathy Aro, “We recognize the green industry values education as well as trade opportunities. It remains our top priority to provide a comprehensive event that engages both our local and regional audiences, highlights the northern climate, and provides the unparalleled networking opportunities our attendees have come to expect.”
