Springtime came to Baltimore Jan. 6-8, as the 46th annual Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) covered the Baltimore Convention Center’s 300,000+ square feet of exhibit space with greenery and blooms. .

This year, MANTS welcomed 11,039 paid registrants (including exhibitors) who gathered to do business, network and learn about horticultural trends for 2016.

More than 960 exhibiting companies filled over 1,536 booths displaying everything from flowers, trees and plants to decks, fountains, pots, and innovative technological solutions for the gardening and landscape industries.

MANTS 2016 also gathered industry professionals from 44 states and 11 countries. These countries included Italy, India, Israel, Netherlands, Turkey, Australia and China, some of which were debuting new products at the show.

Among attendees were special groups of green industry up-and-comers spanning Generation X and Y – the Young Nursery Professionals and Emergent Group. These groups work to connect young horticultural professionals online and in person at shows like MANTS for educational, networking and mentoring opportunities.

While attending MANTS, the Young Nursery Professionals/Emergent group not only hosted booths of their own for their respective companies, but also gathered at a networking event bringing together the next generation of green industry innovators and professionals.

In 2017, MANTS will take place Jan. 11-13, at the Baltimore Convention Center.
