MANTS Seeks New Product Media for 2023 Trade Show
The Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) is now accepting submissions of new varieties, products, services and innovations for its 2023 show. All submissions will be included in a roundup shared in advance and on-site with show media and considered for inclusion in the New Product Showcase media event set for Jan. 12, 2023.
Each year, the new product list and showcase draws interest from a mix of green industry media and consumer garden writers who are seeking details on the latest innovations available, to both wholesalers and the public, through online sales or their local garden centers.
“The new product list and media showcase are two free, value-added opportunities available to all MANTS exhibitors,” said Vanessa A. Finney, MANTS executive vice president. “Submission is quick and simple and provides additional opportunities beyond the booth to garner exposure for new innovations.”
In the last few years, featured new products included a mix of green industry tools, new plant varieties, software and hardscaping equipment including:
- Emerald Squeeze Thuja (Thuja occidentalis ‘Lilshreckthu’ PPAF) from Star Roses and Shreckhise Nurseries Inc.
- The Holmac Treedigger from BDI Machinery Sales
- Garden Center Solutions Text Club
- Hibiscus ‘Edge of Night’ and Sedum ‘Back in Black’ from Walters Gardens
To be considered for inclusion in the showcase, all exhibitors must complete the New Products online entry form by Dec. 2, 2022. Show organizers will then review, select and notify exhibitors selected for the new product showcase media event.
The submission form is available in the MANTS Exhibitor Console and online. Media interested in attending the New Product Showcase on Jan. 12 can register here.
