Founded in 1970, the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) is widely known as “The Masterpiece of Trade Shows” and the place where industry members gather every January. The show covers over 300,000 square feet of exhibit space—filling an entire level of the Baltimore Convention Center.
The show provides an opportunity for those in the green industry to see the latest trends and products, as well as a chance to do business and network. That’s why organizers call MANTS the premier industry marketplace for business.
MANTS draws exhibitors and attendees from throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and Asia. Last year’s show saw more than 11,500 attendees and exhibitors from 46 states and 15 foreign countries—one of the highest turnouts recorded.
MANTS also has a large economic impact on the city of Baltimore, attracting thousands of tourists who bring business to hotels and restaurants during what’s otherwise a slow time of the year.
