Arett Signs Alliance with IGC Show for Lead Spot in Distributor Alley

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
CHICAGO – Arett Sales has signed an alliance with the IGC Show that positions it in the lead showroom of the Distributor Alley, a newly dedicated section of the show reserved exclusively for the nation's leading garden center distributors, located directly upstairs from the main show floor, alongside the IGC Know2Grow Retail Conference. "While we've always encouraged distributor participation in the IGC Show, we've seen a marked increase of exhibiting distributors ready to accept orders on the spot from retailers," says Jeff Morey, IGC Show Founder. "This order-writing on-site is a major benefit to everyone in the industry, especially with the recent changes in the distributor shows following the collapse of Commerce. Now, Arret and others in the Distributor Alley join the IGC Show's many exhibitors writing orders directly with garden retailers on the trade show floor." Lindsey Chesbrough, President ofArett, says, "Arett is very excited to participate in this year's IGC Show. We applaud the IGC Show for its support of independent garden centers - especially the diversity and quality of the educational seminars. We look forward to seeing many of our customers and showcasing key items as an introduction to our upcoming Open House Trade Show in September. We look forward to seeing everyone in Chicago." Arett will accept orders at the IGC Show on all vendors it works with, according to Jim Williams, Arret’s Senior Product Merchant.
