                                             THE 2017 GRIFFIN EXPOS IN REVIEW

                                              By Tracey Gorrell, Marketing Communications Lead

                                              Did you know 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of Griffin Greenhouse Supplies? Charlie
                                              Griffin first opened the doors of his namesake company in 1947, and the business has
                                              been going – and growing – strong ever since.
                                              For more than half of those 70 years, Griffin has hosted annual Expos. The events serve
                                              to kick off the new growing season with booking specials, promotions and educational
                                              opportunities exclusively for Griffin customers. It’s the perfect place for growers and
                                              retailers to stock up on must-have inputs at the best prices of the season.
                                              The Expos have come a long way from the parking lot of our Tewksbury, Mass.,
                                              headquarters where the first shows were held. Each year, the Expos evolve to bring new
                                              and greater value to attendees. This year’s Grower & Retailer Expos again offered a mix
                                              of fresh and familiar.
                                              In the “fresh” department, the most obvious change was a new home for our
                                              Massachusetts show, which took place August 23-24. After many years at the Eastern
         Cover Photo   |   Snowridge Mini Wine   States Exposition Center in West Springfield, the Expo set up shop at the DCU an
          cyclamen from Syngenta Flowers
                                              upgraded and more modern exhibit hall, and easier access to dining and hotels.
                                              “The DCU Center enabled us to deliver an improved Expo experience to our customers
