CHICAGO – Independent garden center retailers and vendors from all across the country and around the world gathered at the IGC Show in Chicago for the 12th annual event’s trade show, order-writing specials, inspirational keynotes, continuing education and peer-to-peer networking at its best. The excitement started on Monday, when five coach buses filled to capacity took tour-goers on a journey of retail discovery during the IGC Show Store Tour. The next morning, Dr. Charlie Hall kicked things off with a fascinating look at the trends reshaping retail as we know it, and the key edge today’s indie garden centers are able to leverage as their community’s trusted local resource. After a full day of meeting face-to-face with new and established vendors, the crowds flowed into Tuesday evening’s free party, where The Marshall Tucker Band turned the mic over to the audience to join them in singing “Heard It In a Love Song.” Wednesday started with a standing-room-only keynote from Shark Tank’s Daymond John, who chronicled the determination and entrepreneurial grit that helped get him to the top, and the mindfulness that compels him today to share his story with others. On Thursday, attendees of Continuing Education @ IGC wrapped up their two-day “coursework,” taking back new strategies for their garden centers’ success, both online and in-store. Plans are already in the works for IGC Show 2019, and preregistration is slated to open soon. Watch for more details, coming soon! Save These Dates!
