Retailer’s Choice Awards at 2017 Farwest Show
The 2017 Farwest Show, Aug. 23-25, in Portland, Oregon, will once again sponsor The Garden Center Group’s Retailers’ Choice Awards at this year’s show. The Retailers’ Choice Awards takes place at major trade shows around the country each year. At Farwest, representatives of The Garden Center Group will search the show floor for the top new innovative plants, hard goods, products and services that can make a positive impact on operations and bottom-line performance for independent garden centers.
The awards process takes place over two days, Wednesday, Aug. 23 and Thursday, Aug. 24. It will be led by Danny Summers, managing director, The Garden Center Group. All garden retailers are welcome to participate in the product search on Wednesday, Aug. 23, gathering at the show main entrance C-Lobby at noon for instruction and nomination forms.
After searching the floor and gathering entries individually on Wednesday, the team will regroup at 5 p.m., Room A103, to compare notes and choose top picks. Winners will be presented at the Retailer Idea Center, on the show floor, on Thursday, Aug. 24, at 3 p.m. Representatives from companies awarded will share information on their products at that time.
