Now in its 13th year, the Independent Garden Center Show will be held from August 13-15, 2019 at Lakeside | McCormick, a modern facility with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer sweeping views of Lake Michigan. The landscaped deck is a serene place to enjoy the cascading waterfall overlooking the lake.
The IGC Show is the country’s only show dedicated to independent garden centers, and Sun Gro Horticulture will be at the industry trade show, along with hundreds of other vendors, highlighting the best new products and services we have to offer. The event will also include great keynote speakers, educational seminars, tours, concerts, and other networking events.
One of the notable keynote speakers includes Jeff “Skunk” Baxter who will present on the topic “So what can a classic rock star do to help your store?” Plenty! Jeff is a founding member of Steely Dan and a Grammy-winning guitarist with The Doobie Brothers in addition to being a consultant to the U.S. Department of Defense!
