MGIX Member Summit

December 12, 2018 - December 13, 2018

The MGIX Member Summit, Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association’s (ONLA) annual conference “2.0,” will take place this Dec. 12-13 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton in Columbus, Ohio.

The Summit will welcome 500 business owners, managers and team members in the nursery and landscape industries. The new event format combines traditional education sessions with new networking opportunities designed to build connections and facilitate business between event sponsors and attendees.

Event Features
Prioritizing business development and commerce, ONLA has built a conference schedule that makes it easy for attendees to connect with their peers, clients and vendors. Programs such as speed-networking lunches and roundtable sessions introduce sponsors to attendees and help guide formative discussions, while allowing plenty of free time for perusing 40–50 sponsor exhibits. The new, smaller hotel-based venue allows for easy mingling since all education sessions, special events, meals, and sponsor displays are in one, centralized location.

This networking and professional development event kicks off with a keynote by Terri McEnaney, president of Bailey Nurseries, on Wednesday morning. Additional highlights include ONLA’s awards ceremony and breakfast on Dec. 13, a women’s networking event sponsored by Luxflora and a closing general session and workshop featuring business consultant Anne Obarski of Merchandise Concepts.

Green industry professionals looking to maintain their certifications can attend up to 10 hours of continuing education credits, choosing from 40 sessions in the concurrent tracks of landscape design and maintenance, business and marketing, plant trends and best selections, and pests and diseases. Speakers include national experts, educators from the Ohio State University, and local business owners.

Registration
Registration opens Sept. 15 to ONLA members. Registration will be available to non-members beginning Oct 15. Space is limited.
