About the EventInVigorateU_2022

InVigorateU is an annual event that not only provides great speakers and CEUs, but also offers a chance to take time away from your crazy schedule to focus on what worked last year and what you might want to do differently this year. 

room 1

Day one is devoted to the element that unites all diverse segments of our industry – Plants!  Join your peers and industry experts for sessions devoted to putting more of the right plants in the hands of the public, and ensuring they thrive long after they are planted.  In the evening, join us for the Dinner & Trivia Event to relax with old friends and make some new ones! 

On day two, we get in the weeds with tracks specific to your professional needs and interests.   In 2023, we'll offer breakout sessions for growers, garden centers, landscape professionals, and irrigation contractors. Follow one track all day, or feel free to pick and choose the sessions that best suit your needs.
