PORTLAND, USA: Registration for the 2022 Farwest Show in Portland, Oregon, is now open for attendees and exhibitors at www.farwestshow.com/register  

The three-day trade show and conference takes place Wednesday, August 24 through Friday, August 26 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. It will welcome and unify a broad swath of green industry professionals, including nursery and greenhouse growers, lawn and garden center retailers, landscaping professionals and designers, suppliers, service providers, students, researchers and many others.

“Everyone is excited to get together for Farwest,” said Allan Niemi, Director of Events for the Oregon Association of Nurseries (OAN), which produces the show. “The mood of the industry is upbeat as the demand for green industry products and services continue to be top-of-mind for all our attendees and exhibitors.”

Two all-day tours of local nurseries and retail garden centers precede the show, starting at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, August 23. The trade show floor will be open August 24-26, noon–5 p.m. on Wednesday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Thursday, and 10 a.m.–2 p.m. on Friday. Early bird registration is available until July 31, and comes with discount pricing on floor passes, nursery tours, and educational seminar passes.

Attendees and exhibitors come from around the world to see Farwest and its host state of Oregon, which sold $1.18 billion in nursery material in the most recent year tabulated.

The show floor will be packed with nearly 400 exhibiting companies, including wholesale growers, re-wholesalers, garden centers, landscape designers and service providers, allied service providers and suppliers, and more.

An estimated 5,000 attendees and guests will browse the latest plants, products, and services available to horticultural businesses. Show features include the following:
