MINNEAPOLIS – The Northern Green Expo will bring green industry leaders from five states to the Minneapolis Convention Center on January 5-7, 2011. The Expo is the largest trade show and educational conference in the north central region dedicated exclusively to green industry professionals. The Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association (MNLA) and the Minnesota Turf & Grounds Foundation (MTGF) partner each year to put on the event.

"Re-discover the Green Expo and re-energize your team for the coming year," said Bob Fitch, executive director of the Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association. "There will be several changes to the show this year including an updated show floor layout and education schedule changes requested by attendees.”

Attendees will hear a keynote address from Steve Keating of The Toro Company.  Featured speakers will include: Whitney Cranshaw, Colorado State University; John Greenlee, Greenlee Nursery; Chris Hansen, Great Garden Plants; Chris Heiler, LandscapeLeadership.com; Pat Jones, Golf Course Industry Magazine; Chip Osborne, Osborne Organics; Christy Webber, Christy Webber Landscapes; and many more.  

"We have outstanding educational opportunities planned, but don't forget that networking opportunities are also a huge emphasis - and you'll have plenty of them," said Fitch. "Be sure to talk to seminar leaders and other industry experts at the show to get their perspectives on the upcoming year.”

Expo has averaged nearly 7,500 attendees each of the past eight years. Key owners and other management personnel focused on purchasing decisions comprise a large bloc of the attendance. “We have a loyal and powerful buying force at Expo,” Fitch said.
