Impact Washington:
The Summit

September 16-18, 2019 | Washington, DC

Impact Washington is a two-day advocacy summit where green industry business owners and leaders can take action in Washington, D.C. Providing a united front, this is an opportunity for the landscaper, plant grower, garden retailer, and entire green industry communities to personally and collectively advocate for decisions that help us continue the growth of our $196 billion industry.

Over the course of two days, participants will hear from elected leaders, their staff, and other policy experts on issues of great impact on green industry business success. Our attendees will share their experiences directly with policy makers, providing real-world context and influence to the decisions being made.

Hear from powerful Washington voices.

Sonny Perdue, Andrew Wheeler, Daniel Garza, Stacey Plaskett and Kurt Shrader headline a great list of speakers.

Stay at the beautiful Liaison Hotel.
