Here's What the Industry Is Saying

Frank Honold

Owner/President, Stonecasters LLC

"We look forward to continuing the live experience! There is nothing like customers having a personal, full-sensory experience, surrounded by all of the best that Henri Studio has to offer!"

Kris Reisdorf

Milaeger's, Racine & Sturtevant, Wisconsin

"I like to touch and feel the products I am purchasing for my garden center. It allows me to see the quality of the manufacturing which is very important in our purchasing process. I can’t do this from a website or Zoom call. Also, it has been 2 years since I have networked with many of my friends in the industry, to share experiences with them, so that we can all learn from each other. I look forward to attending the Garden Center Show this year, so that we can get back to these important aspects of running our business."


Mike Bartley

President, TDI Brands

"TDI Brands is gearing up to see everyone again in Milwaukee this August. We sure have missed you!"
