Registration open for 2018 MANTS

The 2018 Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show is returning to Baltimore, MD, Jan. 10-12 for its annual event and registration is now open, according to a news release. The green industry marketplace will once again bring together close to 1,000 vendors from across the country and around the world, making it one of the larger U.S. trade shows serving the horticulture industry.

“We are thrilled to be returning to the Baltimore Convention Center for the 48th annual Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show and look forward to welcoming back longtime exhibitors and friends, as well as newcomers to the show floor,” said MANTS Executive Vice President Vanessa Finney in the release. “My family helped start this trade show to initiate commerce and networking amongst the nursery industry; it is exciting to walk the show floor, feel the buzz of our attendees sharing their passions, and put our finger on the pulse of the industry before spring.”

In an effort to enhance the variety of products, goods and services available, MANTS anticipates welcoming about 100 new exhibiting companies to the show floor this year.

In 2017, MANTS hosted more than 11,300 registrants, including a record-breaking 10,000-plus people who had registered by the end of the first day of the show. These visitors had the opportunity to visit 952 exhibiting companies, spread throughout more than 1,500 booths. The exhibitors and attendees hailed from 45 states, 16 countries, and the territory of Micronesia — all of whom represented a wide variety of products, services and trends on the show floor.
