US (OR): Farwest hosts Retailers' Choice Awards

The 2017 Farwest Show, August 23-25, in Portland, OR, will once again sponsor The Garden Center Group’s Retailers’ Choice Awards at this year’s Show. The Retailers’ Choice Awards takes place at major trade shows around the country each year. At Farwest, representatives of The Garden Center Group will search the Show floor for the top new innovative plants, hard goods, products, and services that can make a positive impact on operations and bottom-line performance for independent garden centers.

The Awards process takes place over two days, Wednesday, August 23 and Thursday, August 24. It will be led by Danny Summers, Managing Director, The Garden Center Group. All garden retailers are welcome to participate in the product search on Wednesday, August 23, gathering at the Show main entrance C-Lobby at noon for instruction and nomination forms. After searching the floor and gathering entries individually on Wednesday, the team will regroup at 5pm, Room A103, to compare notes and choose top picks. Winners will be presented at the Retailer Idea Center, on the Show floor, on Thursday, August 24, at 3pm. Representatives from companies awarded will share information on their products at that time.

To participate in the judging, retailers must pre-register. To sign up, go to, to the ‘Show Features’ page and access the Retailers’ Choice Awards registration link.
