New England Grows, an educational conference and green industry exposition, released its speaker lineup for this year’s conference, which will be held Nov. 30 to Dec. 2 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Grows is designed to give attendees a deeper understanding of design, technology, consumer trends and business best practices. From new plant introductions and disease management strategies to employee recruitment and eco-friendly landscapes, New England Grows covers a wide range of topics.

Acclaimed authors, influential environmentalists and successful entrepreneurs are among the speakers at the conference. Highlights include the following speakers:

  • Tracy DiSabato-Aust—landscape designer, horticulturist and best-selling author, who will lead sessions “Designing with Color, Texture & Form” and “High Impact, Low-Care Plants;”
  • Roger Cook—landscape contractor for the television series “This Old House.” He will lead a session on “Using Natural Stone Construction in the Landscape;” and
  • Michael Raupp, Ph.D.—the entomologist and speaker will lead the sessions “Can Insect Pests be Managed Organically?” and “Mosquito Smackdown: What You Can Do to Stop the Bite.”

Suzi McCoy and Katie McCoy Dubow of the Garden Media Group will also present their predictions for trends to watch in 2017.

In all, conference participants may choose from more than 30 educational sessions over the course of three days. Continuing Education Credit from various professional organizations is available at many sessions.

The Grows exposition will feature 400 industry suppliers, including special Grows-only offers from select vendors. Green industry professionals can check out the latest solutions, view demos and get hands-on access to the tools, plants and technology they need to grow their business.

In addition to in-depth conference sessions, interactive educational opportunities are available throughout the show on the expo floor. Attendees can pick up quick information at 15-minute Sprint Sessions, take in a training session at the new Safety Arena, check out an emerging trends vignette or challenge themselves at the plant ID contest.
