NGB, AAS and HGSA to Host Summer Summit in Iowa

National Garden Bureau, Home Garden Seed Association and All-America Selections are teaming up to host the 2022 Summer Summit in Iowa.

Des Moines and Ames are the perfect destinations for three important industry associations to explore with their agriculture and horticulture rich environment.

The meeting will take place Aug. 2-4 at the Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines. The Des Moines International Airport is just a 15 minute drive from the hotel.

One day will be spent in the greater Des Moines area and the second day will be in Ames — home of Iowa State University and alma mater of many successful horticulture industry professionals.

A few of the highlights of this year’s Summer Summit include:

  • AAS Trial tours
  • HGSA Trial tours
  • AAS Display Garden tours
  • NGB’s Consumer Focus Group, Live!
  • Awards presentations
  • Public garden tours
  • Unique Iowa destination tours

Not only will 2022 be the first time any of the organizations will have had an in-person meeting since 2019, but it will also be a celebration of All-America Selections’ 90th anniversary.

This event is open to anyone (growers, breeders, retailers, brokers, industry reps, educators, media, garden communicators, etc.) interested in any or all of these three organizations, the trials and other local sites.
