GLF Exhibitor News

  • 04/27/2012 1:57 PM | John Batdorf (Administrator)
    Over 35 MGT members and GLF exhibitors heard updates about the Green Living Festival from MGT Program Manager, Dr. Kerrie Saunders, and learned more about green exhibiting from Jerry Neale, publisher of Natural Awakenings magazines. Many exhibitors took the opportunity to share about their green/wellness products and services. Afterwards, several shared a nice meal at the meeting location - Rochester Mills. The MGT Meeting Power Point presentation is linked here. We're planning to schedule another team meeting before the festival

    Friday the 13th will be bad luck for exhibitors wishing to register for the Green Living Festival at a lower price, but who don't get around to it by the end of the day. Prices will be increasing on all exhibit spaces.  Register before this Friday to get the lowest available pricing, still much lower than comparable events.
