Attendee Information:

Why Attend?

We have been hosting this event annually for over 20 years and it is truly a very efficient way to see new and quality products, and, can save you up to 2 weeks of typical in office appointments with potential vendors. A couple of highlights you need to know about NLGS and how we are different than a typical tradeshow:

  • Airfare, up to $400, registration, and majority of meals paid for by NLGS
  • Source new, unique, and quality products in pre-set, scheduled appointments
  • No long winded sales pitches – appointments are held to 10 minutes
  • See up to 100 companies in 2 days
  • Save your feet! No need to walk miles of aisles. Personal conference table; vendors come to you
  • Solidify relationships with current contacts at one location
  • Exclusive offsite party for buyers and sponsors

 
Time.

NLGS is efficient. We organize private, pre-scheduled, face-to-face meetings with vendors who supply your interests. No pitches for illegitimate products, no hour long presentations and gimmicks. See up to 100 qualified, eager vendors at NLGS, getting a year’s worth of face-to-face interaction in the span of two days. That is efficiency.

Simplicity.

NLGS does not have a booth component. Rather than walking for miles on the show floor, buyers have their own conference table and vendors do the walking. Rather than a vendor free for all, NLGS organizes meetings with vendors, embracing pre-set, compatibility based appointments, facilitating fruitful, productive business conversation and relationships.

Privacy.

View products without Vendor interruptions or persuasions. Our Point of Purchase Showcase is just that, a quiet space to view products at a point of purchase level, with no salesman. The Prototype Showcase is similar, offering displays of up and coming products, while also allowing you to provide feedback and guide how exciting products hit the market.

Investment.

We could spend a whole lot of time trying to calculate ROI for attending NLGS. But, at the end of the day, one really can’t put a price tag on a new relationship. We instead like to think of it like this:

What is it worth to you to see vendors, in private, in your own space, with focused, efficient discussion?

NLGS offers the opportunity to have a year’s worth of such meetings, all for the price of two nights at a hotel. We cover food, airfare, and waive the registration fee. Not much to lose…

Exhibitor Information:

Why Vendors Should Attend

This is an event with guaranteed results! The National Lawn & Garden Show is best described as “speed-dating” for Lawn and Garden products! You are finally the one in control, moving from table to table, presenting your company and products to compatible and decision making buyers.

Time.

NLGS is efficient. We organize private, pre-scheduled, face-to-face meetings with buyers who are already interested in your products. You get ten minutes to pitch your product, but more importantly, to start a relationship. NLGS offers a year’s worth of face-to-face interaction in the span of two days. That is efficiency.

Simplicity.

With a simple, Point of Purchase product showcase, NLGS offers a relationship driven model. No more hoping buyers stop in your booth, no walk-bys, and no cumbersome booth setup and monitoring. Display your products in a simple, elegant, setting and do the important work in your guaranteed face-to-face meetings.

ROI.

We could spend a whole lot of time trying to calculate ROI for attending NLGS. But, at the end of the day, one really can’t put a price tag on a new relationship. We instead like to think of it like this:

If a buyer invited you to their office for a face-to-face meeting, how much would you spend to get there?

What about airfare, hotel, and rental car? NLGS can facilitate over 50 of these meetings, in two days. One plane ticket, one hotel, one rental car. How much is a private, focused interaction with a new, interested buyer worth to you? What about fifty meetings, with fifty interested buyers?
