Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association announces today that it is transitioning to a new format for its annual conference, Midwest Green Industry Experience. ONLA will host the 2018–2019 MGIX Series, a collection of three professional networking programs that prioritize education, business development, collaboration, and relationship building.


While ONLA enjoyed a successful regional tradeshow, MGIX and previously known as CENTS, for many years, the association is confident that this new model will better serve its membership with more personalized programming spread throughout the year and offered in different locations across the state.


The first event in the series, the MGIX Member Summit, takes place on December 12 and 13, 2018 in Columbus, Ohio at Hilton Easton. This premier, two-day conference provides a solutions-based learning experience for business owners and professionals in the landscape and nursery segments and facilitates collaboration amongst attendees and sponsors. Highlights include a keynote presentation by Terri McEnaney, President of Bailey Nurseries, and ONLA’s annual awards celebration.


In March 2019, ONLA will host MGIX Training Days: Gear Up for Spring on March 5, 2019 in Dayton, Ohio and March 7, 2019 in Cleveland, Ohio. These one-day programs will feature education sessions, workshops, business development, and networking opportunities for landscapers, growers, and retail garden centers.


The MGIX Series complements ONLA’s current schedule of social and educational programming, including its annual golf outing, seasonal diagnostic walkabouts, biennial advocacy days, and the Ohio High School Landscape Olympics.


Presenting Sponsors of the MGIX Series are: TAH Benefits, a leading benefits partner for Ohio green industry companies, and Wolf Creek Company, a distribution group serving the green industry since 1961.
