The Garden Writers Association (GWA) is one of the most unique writers’ organizations in North America.
GWA members are the critical information link between the lawn and garden industry and the gardening public.

Lawrence Convention Center. The exhibition is held in conjunction
with the 66th GWA Annual Symposium, to be held
August 8-11, 2014, at the Westin. Exhibitors are welcomed

Receive Maximum Exposure
In addition to the exposure received during the official exhibit hours, each exhibit space includes a full meeting registration.
By participating in the daily activities and tours, exhibitors

editors. When it comes to networking and building valuable
personal contacts, no other meeting offers garden product
manufacturers and service providers a greater opportunity.
