With the well-being of those attending and the integrity of the event in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Garden Center Conference & Expo to 2022.

We continue to be committed to delivering industry-leading education to the independent garden center market and take pride in the quality of education and networking we’ve been able to deliver to the market. The imposition of corporate travel restrictions combined with increased concern about the spread of the COVID Delta variant has forced us to make this very hard decision.

While we are eager to connect with our industry once again, we are looking forward to doing so when we can safely deliver the standard of events and networking you expect from us.

Updates regarding our 2022 event dates will be provided as soon as they are available here and at gardencentermag.com, as well as our social media channels and newsletter. You can expect to see many of the same speakers and topics at next year’s event, as well as some new and exciting sessions.

If you are a registered attendee of this year's conference, you have two options regarding your current registration:

  • Do nothing, and we will honor your ticket for Garden Center Conference & Expo 2022 (dates to be determined).
  • Reach out to our Conferences team at conference@gie.net by October 1, 2021 for a full refund.

Thank you for your continued support of the Garden Center Conference & Expo. We hope to see you in 2022.
