The American Nursery and Landscape Association announced today that there will be no ANLA Retail Roadshow in 2010. Instead, the event will be deferred to 2011. As one might expect, the poor economy was cited as the main reason for the decision, which is part of a cutback in travel-based events produced by ANLA. “ANLA continues to offer tremendous value to our retail members with two of our strongest programs, the 2010 Management Clinic and the launch of GCU class of 2012,” ANLA Retail Division President Platt Hill of Platt Hill Nursery (Bloomingdale and Carpentersville, Ill.). “Deferring the roadshow for one year allows both our members and our association to live within the budgets of the new economy and prepare for an outstanding roadshow in 2011.” The 2009 roadshow was held in the Mid-Atlantic states of Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware. The cost was $649, including meals and transportation but not lodging ($625 extra for four nights at Hyatt Regency hotels). ANLA indicated that the 2011 Retail Roadshow is still in the works.
