AAS, NGB and Home Garden Seed Association to Host 2022 Summer Summit Reiman

Jun 8, 2022
Registration Open for AAS, Home Garden Seed Association and NGB 2022 Summer Summit

National Garden Bureau, Home Garden Seed Association and All-America Selections are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2022 in-person Summer Summit in Des Moines, Iowa. 

Why Iowa?

  • Because Iowa is the largest producer of pork, corn and eggs in the nation. 
  • The name “Iowa” means beautiful in the language of the original Ioway tribe. 
  • Hogs outnumber people 4 to 1

Des Moines and Ames are the perfect destinations for three important industry associations to explore with their agriculture and horticulture rich environment. 

The meeting will take place Aug. 2-4 at the Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines. The Des Moines International Airport is just a 15-minute drive from the hotel. 

One day will be spent in the greater Des Moines area and the second day will be in Ames, home to Iowa State University and alma mater to many successful horticulture industry professionals. A few of the many highlights of this year’s Summer Summit include:

  • AAS Trial tours
  • HGSA Trial tours
  • AAS Display Garden tours
  • NGB’s Consumer Focus Group, Live!
  • Iowa State Fairgrounds tour
  • Better Home & Gardens garden tour
  • Awards presentations
  • Public garden tours
  • Unique Iowa destination tours

Not only will 2022 be the first time any of the organizations will have had an in-person meeting since 2019, but it will also be a celebration of All-America Selections’ 90th anniversary.

This event is open to anyone (growers, breeders, retailers, brokers, industry reps, educators, media, garden communicators, etc.) interested in any or all of these three organizations, the trials and other local sites. 

Hotel rooms can be reserved via this link.

Attendees are invited to stay in Iowa for the Plant Peddler Plant Trials on Aug. 5 in Cresco, Iowa.
