The Western Nursery & Landscape Association is a regional trade association serving the professional horticulture industry in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Iowa & Nebraska. Our annual trade show and education event is the Western and is held annually in January.
Join us on the trade show floor of the 2015 Western for an incredible, interactive learning experience. Forget the boredom of sitting in dark, windowless rooms watching a seemingly endless PowerPoint. Instead, the 2015 Western is all about interactive discussions, connecting with suppliers, asking questions and walking way with the new tips, tricks, plants and products that will make your business a success in 2015!
125th Anniversary Celebration
A very special 125th Annivesary Celebration Reception will be held on Saturday evening, January 3rd. Longtime exhibitors and members will be recognized, Past Presidents will be honored, special awards will be presented and fond memories and historic photos will be shared. Hors d'oeuvre and drinks will be enjoyed with old friends and colleagues as we celebrate and reminisce.

5th Annual Fashion Show
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 2015 show and our 125th Anniversary Celebration! 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 2015!
The 2015 Western will again feature Learning Centers as the highlight of our education at the show. These innovative, "on the trade show floor" education sessions highlight our exhibitors' knowledge, plants and products while providing valuable learning opportunities for attendees.
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.
