The online Hub features more than 530 exhibiting companies.

The Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show’s new online MANTS.com Business Hub now features more than 530 exhibiting companies who are ready to connect and do business at MANTS 2021, scheduled for Jan. 6-8, 2021.

Attendee registration is $10 per person and delivers immediate access to one-stop shopping, helping buyers gear up for what is anticipated to be another busy year for the industry. The Hub’s intelligent matching technology will identify exhibitors who offer the products and services of interest to each attendee to provide a personalized starting point for conversations and commerce. Individually registered attendees receive 100 Connect Emails and 30 Connect Appointments that they can use to reach out to exhibiting companies to schedule a time for conversation during the show.

“MANTS is committed to helping our attendees and exhibitors connect in January,” says Vanessa Finney, MANTS executive vice president. “Despite not being able to meet in person, MANTS continues to offer the opportunity for companies to build relationships and do business. There is no need to spend hours shopping online or searching individual websites when the MANTS Business Hub features 530 suppliers who are just a click away.”

Attendees can also search exhibitor profiles via the virtual tradeshow floorplan, alphabetized exhibitor list, or easily dive into more specific sections of the Hub to explore featured and new product information, images and videos. They can also read up on company news and information, explore show specials and manage their appointments and outreach. Many exhibitors are also providing opportunities to participate in virtual group sales presentations, live product demonstrations and hosted drop-in hours. These will be listed in each exhibitor’s profile and aggregated in the MANTS Show schedule.

Attendee registration closes on Jan. 8. Attendees will have access to the Business Hub and exhibitor product information for 90 days post-show. They can also choose to receive a print or digital version of the annual Buyer’s Guide when registering.
