SNA Conference to Meet in Baltimore Again in 2019

The 2019 SNA Conference will take place Jan. 7-8, 2019, at the Baltimore Convention Center, preceding the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) on Jan. 9-11, 2019.

The conference is produced by the Southern Nursery Association.

Participants of the 2018 SNA Conference were positive about the location, the meeting space and the added convenience of the conference held two days before the opening of MANTS. Participants were once again impressed with the plant conference speaker lineup and 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.

SNA ConferenceThis year, Dr. Charlie Hall and Dr. Marco Palma, Texas A&M, teamed up to present “The Forecast – A Preliminary Outlook for the Spring Season” during the SNA SuperSesson. These two green industry economists offered a preliminary economic outlook for the industry and the key drivers impacting the industry. The complete video presentation is available at

In 2019, the conference will include more “cross-pollination” between the plant conference and research conference presentations. This means even more collaboration and synergies between all participants.
