IGC Show is the world’s largest trade show and conference for independent garden center owners, managers and buyers. It is not open to the general public. It presents an expansive and carefully selected showcase of garden center products available at wholesale from around the world. IGC Show is a juried show - this means that every exhibiting company has been meticulously screened to ensure the products offered for sale are relevant to garden centers. IGC buyers don’t have to wade through item after item irrelevant to their stores, as is so often the case at lesser events. In addition to the trade show, IGC Show offers the industry’s most comprehensive educational program, with focused seminars, workshops, tours and keynotes led by the brightest minds in business. What's more, a variety of special events offer key opportunities to network. IGC's Free Party & Concert is the fun and networking event of the year for independent garden centers and vendors. Past IGC Show Concert headliners have included REO Speedwagon, The Marshall Tucker Band, Blue Öyster Cult, the Gin Blossoms, Don Felder of The Eagles, Eddie Money, America, Kansas, Foreigner's Lou Gramm, Charlie Daniels, Styx's Dennis DeYoung and 38 Special, among others.
