National Lawn & Garden Show to celebrate 20 years in 2014

An exclusive industry buying event, the 19th Annual NLGS was held in Chicago and highlights included not only a rise in the number of new and first-time vendors and buyers, but also an expanded pet products division that attracted new lawn, garden and pet buyers.

In 2013, The Board of Directors in conjunction with National Lawn & Garden Show initiated a vendor company loyalty discount program for companies who have consistently attended NLGS since its inception in 1995.

“It is our way of giving back to those who have supported our buying event, said Bob Mikulas, president and founder. “We sincerely appreciate the companies that have been loyal to this event over the years and trust their business has grown and benefited from consistently attending. This is our way of saying thank you for their patronage.”

Many lawn and garden companies agree. “NLGS is guaranteed to create a personalized schedule unique to every vendor and buyer who attends the event,” said Larry DeWitt founder of DeWitt Company. “It’s an incredibly productive and economical choice for our company, and that is why we have attended for the past 19 years.”

For vendor companies who have attended the event for at least three years, NLGS offers a graduated discount to the current registration fee. The more years that an individual company has attended the event, the higher the discount is and the more complimentary services your company will receive.

“Our sole mission since 1995 has been to provide an affordable, efficient, alternative to traditional tradeshows which assures buyer/vendor introductions in preset scheduled appointments,” said Mikulas. “We love what we do and wouldn’t change it for the world.”
