US (OR): Farwest Show to host networking events for young professionals and women in horticulture

The 2019 Farwest Show will offer two networking opportunities for key segments of the industry. The first event, Emergent Networking Event, is for business people who are new to the horticulture industry; the second event, Women in Horticulture, gives women in the industry a forum so they can share and make connections. The show will take place August 21–23 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon.

The Emergent Networking Event, sponsored by Heritage Seedlings & Liners Inc. and Supreme Perlite Company, takes place from 3:30–5 p.m., Wednesday, August 21, in VIP Room B, and is open to all horticulture professionals. Emergent brings together industry professionals under the age of 40 and to mingle, network, and build a brighter future for the green industry. Originating in 2011 with a handful of eager, talented young individuals, Emergent: A Group for Growing Professionals now boasts more than 3,800 of the nation’s brightest young minds in horticulture. Extending the event beyond Farwest, participants will be able to network online on Emergent’s Facebook page. Attendance is free.

The Women in Horticulture networking event, sponsored by Supreme Perlite Company, is scheduled from 3:30–5 p.m., Thursday, August 22, in VIP Room B. It will give women across the industry an opportunity to expand their business networks and find a new sense of inspiration with like-minded professionals.
