AmericanHort announced the rescheduled dates for the Plug & Cutting conference will be September 4-6, 2019 in Charlotte, NC.
Originally scheduled for September of this year in Charlotte, NC, the conference was cancelled due to the looming threat of Hurricane Florence, a category 4 hurricane that made landfall on the eastern Carolina coast on September 14th.
“We had record breaking attendance for the event and were disappointed to have to reschedule, however, out of an abundance of caution for our members, attendees, and sponsors and great respect for the people of North Carolina whose lives were to be disrupted by hurricane Florence, we felt this was without question the right thing to do,” said Ken Fisher, President and CEO of AmericanHort.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience as we’ve worked to identify the best time to reschedule this event. As you might imagine there are a myriad of details that go into planning a conference like this. We had to make sure we had an appropriate facility and as few industry conflicts as possible to host an event that meets the needs of all participants from attendees, exhibitors, tour hosts and educational speakers,” said Fisher.
The 2019 Plug & Cutting conference will again be in Charlotte, NC at the Embassy Suites-Concord. The Production Tour stops will be at the same venues. Tour participants will have the opportunity to visit Metrolina Greenhouses, a family owned wholesales plant and services company with the largest single-site heated greenhouse in the United States, and Rockwell Farms, a family-owned and operated commercial greenhouse with 36 acres of environmentally controlled greenhouse space. The educational sessions and trade show will be held on September 5-6th.
Registration for the 2019 Plug & Cutting event will open in January 2019.
September will be a busy month as AmericanHort will also host Impact Washington The Summit from September 16-19, 2019 in Washington D.C.
