2020 SNA Conference to Meet in January
The Southern Nursery Association (SNA) has announced that the 2020 SNA Conference once again take place at the Baltimore Convention Center, Jan. 6-7, 2020, preceding the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS), Jan. 8-10, 2020.
Participants of the 2019 SNA Conference were positive about the location, the meeting space and the added convenience of the two-day conference before the opening of MANTS.
The new day-and-a-half format was well received, and participants were impressed with the plant conference speaker lineup, the quality of research papers presented at the research conference and enjoyed the open format of the conference allowing ample time for networking and discussion.
This year, Charlie Hall and Marco Palma, Texas A&M, teamed up to present an economic outlook for the year ahead during the SNA SuperSesson. These two green industry economy experts offered insights on what the industry can expect in 2019. The complete video presentation is available on the SNA website at https://sna.org/page-
AmericanHort’s Craig Regelbrugge also presented his insight on the ever-changing political landscape on Capitol Hill. Immediately following his presentation, the 2019 SNA Awards and the Bryson L. James Student Competition Awards were presented. 2019 SNA Award recipients and information can be found on the SNA website at https://sna.org/page-
In 2020, conference participants can look forward to more “cross-pollination” between the plant conference and research conference presentations. This means even more collaboration and synergies between all participants.
