IGC SHOW UNVEILS NEW SHOW HALL WITH ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE FROM ATTENDEES & EXHIBITORS
IGC Show is busy making plans for its 14th year next summer, after wrapping up the 2019 event at its new home, Lakeside | McCormick, with next-level excitement and opportunities for the independent garden center channel from a host of new offerings and improvements attendees called transformative. Central to the changes is the new show layout that brings everything together in one area. “It’s so much easier to walk, and the buzz is everywhere, with the show, classes and networking building an energy, side by side,” says Christie Egendoerfer, Manager of Linton’s Enchanted Gardens in Elkhart, IN. Buyers noted the expansion of product represented this year. “There is so much at IGC,” says Heidi Heiland, CEO of Heidi’s GrowHaus & Lifestyle Gardens in Corcoran, MN. “We’ve identified product here that we don’t carry, and we’re excited to bring it back as a differentiator for our store.” First-time attendees, as well as longtime show supporters, expressed enthusiasm about the unique buying experience this year. “This was my first time at the show,” says Jolanta Fergus, Buyer at Mama T’s Tillandsias and Tiny Treasures in Orland Park, IL. “It’s so much better being able to see, touch and compare products in person versus going online, where you see a picture and hope for the best.” Exhibitor booths were also bustling with positive energy, as vendors expressed enthusiasm over the foot traffic and order writing on-site.  “This was our first year exhibiting at the IGC Show, and it was really amazing,” says Mark O’Hara, Salesperson at Direct International in Newton Falls, OH. “We brought five people to work the booth, and they were nonstop busy. The buyers were so excited about seeing all of our products.”
IGC SHOW BUYERS VOTE THESE AS THEIR TOP PICKS IN THE NEW PRODUCT ZONE & NEW PLANT ZONE
Two products and two plants were voted the best by attendees at IGC Show 2019, which just wrapped up its 13th year at Lakeside | McCormick in Chicago. The winning items, highlighted in the New Product Zone and New Plant Zone, were submitted by vendors all across the show as their “latest and greatest,” both by established exhibitors as well as companies new to the industry. New Product Zone, First Place: Complete Grow Kits from A Pot for Pot, Oakland, CA - Kits for growing cannabis at home, where legal, include the company’s living soil blend, grow guide, container and saucer, beneficial bacteria, diatomaceous earth and more. New Product Zone, Second Place: Fir Needle Products from Bedrock Tree Farm, Wakefield, RI - Produced at the company’s holiday tree farm in Wakefield, RI, these soy candles are made with real fir needles and a combination of natural essential and fragrance oils in 100 percent soy wax. New Plant Zone, First Place: Tillandsia Arrangement of Yellow Star, Large Capitata Maroon & Tropiflora from Russell’s Bromeliads, Clermont, FL - The large specimens with showy blooms in this unique arrangement are designed to stand out from smaller air plants typically sold at the boxes. New Plant Zone, Second Place: First Editions Iceberg Alley Sageleaf Willow from Bailey Nurseries, St. Paul, MN - The small shrub features powdery, silver foliage and adds texture and contrast. Exhibitors are encouraged to plan their New Product Zone and New Plant Zone submissions now for IGC Show 2020 to ensure space availability and maximum visibility to buyers.
