The Western is moving back to Crown Center Exhibit Hall and adjoining Sheraton Hotel (what many of you remember as the Hyatt Regency) in downtown Kansas City for the show! We all remember it was such a great gathering place with its inviting lobby and Spectators Bar filled to the brim with folks from our industry - great networing has taken place there and will again in January!
For more than a century, our association has continued to serve our members in countless ways - facilitating commerce, providing education and most importantly allowing relationships to begin, grow and florish.
The Western Nursery and Landscape Association is composed of breeders, growers, independent garden centers, landscape contractors, landscape designers, landscape architects, research professionals & public gardens from throughout the United States and Canada.
