The NLGS gives buyers and vendors opportunities to meet face-to-face.

| March 7, 2013

The 19th annual National Lawn & Garden Show is set for June 11-13, 2013, in Chicago.

For the past 18 years, the NLGS has designed an exclusive industry buying event, pairing buyers and vendors  face-to-face in preset, scheduled appointments, according to a news release from NLGS.
 
“Our sole mission since 1995 has been to provide an affordable, efficient, alternative to traditional tradeshows, which assures buyer/vendor introductions in preset scheduled appointments,” said Bob Mikulas, president and founder.

More than 6,000 face-to-face appointments took place in less than three days between buyers and vendors of the lawn, garden and pet industries during the 2012 event.

Buyers are matched with vendors based on common product interests, resulting in thousands of appointments. Appointments are exclusive and open to qualified decision-making buyers and vendors.

The event is known for bringing in the mid-tier buyers who represent 90 percent of the merchandising opportunities in the US. Historically, NLGS has hosted 14 of the top 20 U.S. lawn and garden retailers annually at the event.

The 2013 NLGS event will be held at the Crowne Plaza O’Hare. For more information and to register, visit www.nlgshow.com.
