RALEIGH, N.C. – The North Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association announces special features and highlights for the 2015 Green & Growin’ Trade Show. It is the first show of the year, taking place Jan. 5-9, 2015, in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The trade show includes over 400 exhibitors featuring nursery and greenhouse plants, equipment and allied supplies; the show also features over 100 education classes.

NCNLA will welcome John Kennedy, with Kennedy Consulting, as this year’s keynote speaker. Join Kennedy as he walks you through the process of strategic planning, change management and creates your very own roadmap for the next year ahead. 

In addition to NCNLA’s two-day show, its unique three-day Education Conference (Jan. 5-7) will highlight classes, seminars and workshops from top industry educators and other North Carolina green industry associations, including a Hispanic education track taught in Spanish.

Attendees will also be presented with a variety of opportunities to earn professional green industry credits, certifications and licenses during the week, such as Energy Saving Landscape Certification” and CEU’s for pesticide, irrigation, landscape architect and arborist licenses.
