New home for IGC East

September 29, 2014  By Canadian Garden Centre & Nursery

Sept. 29, 2014, Baltimore – IGC East will move to the Baltimore Convention Center in 2015.

Show organizers announced that the second edition of IGC East will convene at the popular venue from Aug. 4 to 6, 2015, ahead of IGC Chicago, which will run Aug. 18 to 20, 2015 at Navy Pier. Both shows will offer all the features and benefits the industry has come to expect, including thousands of new products, inspiring keynotes and headliner concerts, plus scores of conference sessions and networking opportunities.

"Baltimore Convention Center is a venue that is comfortably familiar and prized by our industry – it's home to the popular MANTS show in January, and the former home of the once-mighty, now-defunct Commerce Show," said Jeff Morey, founder of the IGC Show. "While IGC East is certainly not a distributor show, our intention is to fill the void that's existed since the Commerce Show left the scene in the East. Now we're excited to serve garden centre buyers in the region, bringing the IGC Show's signature all-category trade show, fully rounded educational conference, networking and one-of-a-kind fun and entertainment."


IGC East’s location in Baltimore offers world-class dining, shopping and entertainment along Inner Harbor, the city’s seaport destination rich in history and redeveloped into a premier tourist attraction.

“Not only is the Baltimore Convention Center one of the most strikingly unique architectural centers in the United States, Inner Harbor in summertime is absolutely incredible,” said Morey. “During after-show hours, we’re looking forward to seeing IGC show-goers along the waterfront, enjoying the many attractions Inner Harbor has to offer.”

More details about IGC East and IGC Chicago, including next summer’s spotlight keynotes and concerts at both events, will be announced soon. For more information about the IGC Show, visit
