The show averages 8,100 wholesale growers, retailers, landscape contractors/designers/architects, industry suppliers, educators and others from virtually every U.S. state and several foreign countries. The show is produced by the Oregon Association of Nurseries. Over 50 percent of exhibiting companies are wholesale nurseries at the Farwest Trade Show – more green goods exhibitors than any other show in North America. You will find every conceivable type of plant material for which your customers are asking, from the newest varieties to old favorites. Place your order with the growers that are known throughout the country for their exceptional quality. Exhibitors include small specialty nurseries, growers devoted to serving the landscape trade, the best and biggest nurseries in the country, and growers catering to independent garden centers.
