The Texas Nursery & Landscape Association, Austin, Texas, has cancelled its show, scheduled for Aug. 13-14, in San Antonio, Texas.

TNLA issued the following statement:

For over 65 years, the Nursery/Landscape Expo has been the source of innovation, education, new products and inspiration for the Texas Green Industry. During those few days in August we have embraced the legacy and comradery of joining together as friends and making business connections, while upholding the values of time-honored traditions and making long-lasting memories. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to TNLA and to Expo through the years.

As we navigated our way through the coronavirus pandemic TNLA worked tirelessly to keep our members’ businesses “essential”, however, large gatherings and close proximity are not encouraged at this time. It is with sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Nursery/Landscape Expo that was scheduled for August 13-14, 2020, in San Antonio, Texas. As with other green industry shows, this decision was not made lightly. many people were consulted such as: our exhibitors, attendees, state board of directors, our attorneys and the Governor’s executive orders. the directors felt this ruling was the most feasible and responsible for exhibitors, partners, attendees, staff and the Green Industry community.

TNLA has a proud tradition of producing the largest gathering in the South-Central United States. TNLA and the state board of directors eagerly anticipates a robust 2021 Nursery/Landscape Expo! We look forward to continuing to “Find our Greatness” in San Antonio on August 5-7, 2021.
