    Improving Profitability with Free Marketing Programs
    Saturday, July 15 • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

    In this session, a panel of experienced growers, brokers, and retailers will explain how they have used the free marketing programs that the non-profit organizations All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau create for the industry. They will give a better understanding of the AAS trials and resulting winners and NGB's Year of program for annuals, perennials, edibles, shrubs, houseplants, and bulb crops. Then, our successful professionals will explain how they have, are, and will use the free programs provided by these organizations. Join us for this exciting idea toss-out and case-study of how anyone can sell more product by using these programs.
