PORTLAND – When event organizers postponed the Nursery Guide LIVE virtual marketplace due to widespread power outages and winter storm damage, they rescheduled the event for March 17-18, 2021.

The show that was supposed to take place this week will now be one month later at

The weather event caused power losses across Oregon, as well as ice damage at several Oregon nurseries. This resulted in the need for an “all hands on deck” approach at these nurseries, to assess the damage and get everything up and running again.

“Some of our nurseries were affected more than others, but enough of them are affected to such a degree that they need their team members in the field,” show director Allan Niemi said. “The right call was to reschedule Nursery Guide LIVE so everyone can fully participate. We will hold the show a month later than originally planned. An online event gave us the flexibility to do this, and we’re still excited to show what our online virtual event platform can do.”
