Now in its fourth decade, MANTS® is the premier, private green industry marketplace for finding plants and nursery stock, landscape and garden items, heavy and light duty equipment, tools, furniture and hundreds of other allied industry products. Companies' exhibit and industry members attend because they know that MANTS is the place to buy, shop, meet, see, be and be seen every January. MANTS is one of the largest private trade shows serving the Horticulture Industry which is why industry members say that MANTS means business! Whether you are an exhibitor or attendee, buying, shopping or just looking, this is the one show that is all about you. Companies and industry members alike know where they'll be in January, because "If it's January, it must be MANTS!" Learn more at
