Tewksbury, Mass., Nov. 1, 2016 – Griffin has announced the dates for its 2017 Grower & Retailer Expos. The company will host two Expo events in 2017, each spanning two full days. Both shows will feature suppliers and educational sessions representing all facets of Griffin’s business – hard goods, live goods and retail supplies.
The Massachusetts Expo will take place Aug. 23-24, 2017, at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass. This marks a change of venue for the Massachusetts Expo, formerly held at the Eastern States Exposition Center in West Springfield, Mass.
“The new Massachusetts venue enables us to deliver an improved experience for our customers and vendors,” says Rick Hyslip, president of Griffin. “Attendees will benefit from a larger, more modern exhibit hall, and convenient proximity to hotels and dining.”
“The venue change was driven by the significant growth of our Expos in recent years,” Hyslip adds. “The DCU Center is a better fit for our exhibitors and customers now, and provides us with room for continued growth in the future.”
The Pennsylvania Expo is set for Sept. 27-28, 2017, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, Penn.
The Expos are an annual staple for Griffin customers dating back to 1981. The events serve to kick off the booking season, offering customers a range of Expo-exclusive promotions, booking specials and educational opportunities. For more information, log on to www.griffins.com.
