For the Gardener in You

We want a conference environment rich in celebration, education and growth. That’s our primary objective. To achieve that goal our IMGC 2023 teams are dedicated to giving you their best based on our shared strengths and interests.

We all benefit from their competency in every aspect of the conference, which includes communications, speakers and presenters, tours, workshops, logistics, catering, trade show, and environmental stewardship.

Thank you to our dedicated team.
