1 Min Read

From April 7 to April 9th, the National Greenhouse Manufacturers Association met up in Clearwater Beach, Florida. The goal of the National Greenhouse Manufacturers Association is to represent and advance the interests of the greenhouse industry through education, networking, and communication.

NGMA’s Annual Meetings consist of a program that offers participants the opportunity to gain insights and learn about the latest trends in the greenhouse industry. It’s gaining popularity with component suppliers and brought in around 60 attendees this year.

This year’s program included talks from Dr. Charlie Hall, a Professor in the Department of Horticultural Sciences at Texas A&M University, asking whether the good times are over. During this presentation, Charlie addressed the main economic drivers of the current situation, how the economy has been as resilient as it has, why consumers still perceive the opposite despite increased wages and economic growth, and what has to happen for people to feel like times are good again. Finally, what does all of this mean for the future of sales of greenhouse crops?

Other topics discussed included marketing opportunities, panel discussions, and member meetings.
