IGC Show is the world’s largest trade show and conference for independent garden center owners, managers and buyers. It is not open to the general public. It presents an expansive and carefully selected showcase of garden center products available at wholesale from around the world. IGC Show is a juried show - this means that every exhibiting company has been meticulously screened to ensure the products offered for sale are relevant to garden centers. IGC buyers don’t have to wade through item after item irrelevant to their stores, as is so often the case at lesser events.
In addition to the trade show, IGC Show offers the industry’s most comprehensive educational program, with focused seminars, workshops, tours and keynotes led by the brightest minds in business. What's more, a variety of special events offer key opportunities to network. IGC's Free Party & Concert is the fun and networking event of the year for independent garden centers and vendors.
No other show delivers a more concentrated and cost-effective opportunity to present your entire line, attract new customers and close sales. You'll quickly discover the attendee in your booth is the same one who signs the order. That's because IGC is specifically targeted to garden center owners and managers who have the responsibility and resources to decide and buy. They are the ones whose decisions shape the direction of their businesses... and the commitment of their funds.

IGC SHOW LAUNCHES ‘CANNABIS CORNER’ GROUNDBREAKING NEW PRODUCT SECTION IN SHOW
IGC Show officials announce the launch of the first-ever and only dedicated Cannabis/CBD product showcase in the horticultural trade show industry CANNABIS CORNER, debuting this summer at the IGC Show. This groundbreaking new special section on the exhibit hall floor opens the opportunity for independent garden center retailers to position their stores firmly out front as their customers’ trusted resource in the fast-emerging Home-Grow and CBD Personal Care purchasing categories.
“It’s a sweet spot for independent garden centers,” says Pat Pearsall, Retail Division General Manager of Gardener’s Supply Co., with two locations in Vermont and one location in New Hampshire. “Customers are more likely to go to their local garden center, where they’ve been getting everything they need to grow tomatoes and peppers, to get started.
