MANTS Celebrates 50th Anniversary

The Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) celebrated the show’s 50th anniversary at the Baltimore Convention Center, Jan. 8-10, 2020. The show has its highest attendance in the past 12 years.

MANTS 2020 welcomed more 12,000 attendees and exhibitors. Attendees from 44 states and 15 countries had the opportunity to visit 968 exhibiting companies in 1,550 booths.

“It was an incredible experience to see MANTS turn 50 …I know the show’s founders would be proud of where we are today, and we look forward to the next 50 years.” said Vanessa Finney, executive vice president of MANTS.

In addition to the increased registration in 2020, business was thriving once again this year. More than 88% of MANTS attendees were designated as the representatives in their companies that make or influence final purchasing decisions.

MANTS volunteers were busy during the show giving away a donated prize every 15 minutes through their special anniversary raffle. Seventy-seven prizes were handed out during the three days of the show.

MANTS will return to the Baltimore Convention Center in 2021,  Jan. 6 – 8.
