The Penn Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (PANTS) will move back to Pennsylvania for its 2009 show. For eleven years, the show was held at the Fort Washington Expo Center in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, but when the center closed in 2006, PANTS moved to Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center is under construction near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, and is expected to open in January 2009. Due to its opening and location, PANTS producers have decided to hold the 2009 show in this new facility, which is in a newly developed 300-acre retail and entertainment complex. PANTS is produced by the Pennsylvania Landscape and Nursery Association (PLNA).
PANTS 2009 will be July 28-30.
