Bob Dolibois, former chief executive of the American Nursery and Landscape Association (ANLA), will be the keynote speaker at Green & Growin’ 16, which is set for Jan. 11-15 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Dolibois, who led ANLA for more than two decades, will look back on the green industry’s coming of age but also share his perspective on where it’s headed.

“Bob’s perspective, particularly regarding what lies ahead, is a must-hear for our industry,” said Corey Connors, executive vice president of the North Carolina Nursery and Landscape Association. “We’re honored to have him share ‘the World According to Bob’ as our keynote conversation at Green & Growin’ 16.”

In announcing Dolibois’ scheduled appearance, organizers of the conference note that the nursery and landscape industry has gone from “clipboards to computers” and from operating comfortably under the radar to experiencing increased governmental and regulatory scrutiny during the past 20 years or so.

Dolibois will speak at the event’s “Keynote Breakfast” on Jan. 13 and also will share experiences covered in his recent book, “Back Then to Right Now: The Horticultural Industry Comes of Age.”

Dolibois’ presentation is among more than 80 educational sessions available to green industry professionals during Green & Growin’ 16. The affiliated G&G Marketplace, to be held Jan. 14-15, is the North Carolina Nursery and Landscape Association’s “right-sized” trade show, according to the association, which describes it as the place where “critical mass” meets “don’t get lost in the crowd.”
