Registration open for Farwest Show

Attendee and exhibitor registration is now open for the Farwest Show in Portland, Oregon. 2023 marks the 50th anniversary edition of the show.

 The three-day trade show and conference takes place Wednesday, Aug. 23 through Friday, Aug. 25 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. It is produced by the Oregon Association of Nurseries, the trade group representing Oregon’s nearly $1.4 billion nursery industry. Expo and seminar passes and get early bird discounts are available at www.FarwestShow.com/Register.

The show brings together an assortment of green industry professionals, including nursery and greenhouse growers, lawn and garden center retailers, landscaping professionals and designers, plant breeders, suppliers, service providers, students, researchers, managers, leaders, and others with industry ties.

“For five decades, Farwest has been a reunion and a mixer all in one, where people can reconnect with old customers and friends, and meet many new ones,” said Farwest Show chairman Robb Sloan, owner of Noname Nursery in Forest Grove, Oregon. “We are making the 2023 Farwest Show not just a celebration of this history, but a launchpad for the next 50 years of green industry success.

“We will strengthen our mutual bonds with exciting social events, spontaneous surprises and a floor packed full of great exhibitors,” Sloan continued. “It will be three whirlwind days of handshakes, hugs, connections and fun. We want to make it one to remember.”

Two all-day tours of local nurseries and retail garden centers precede the show, starting on Tuesday, Aug. 22. The trade show floor will be open August 23 to 25, with educational seminars will take place all three days.

“Our seminar schedule is designed to help green industry professionals power up their businesses and careers with engaging seminars on the cutting edge of thought leadership,” said Allan Niemi, director of events at the Oregon Association of Nurseries.

Early bird registration is available until July 31, giving discount pricing on floor passes, nursery tours and educational seminar passes.
