INPAWS Annual Conference

Every November, INPAWS members gather for a full day’s immersion in native plants. The public is invited too. This year’s conference will be held on October 28, 2017, at the Monroe Convention Center in Bloomington, Indiana.

What to Expect 

Conferees come early to pick up their materials, munch on a complimentary continental breakfast, and check out who’s attending. After the president’s greeting and a brief business meeting (e.g., election of officers), the immersion begins.

We usually have a keynote speaker or two, plus additional lectures and breakouts, depending on what the conference committee decides. During breaks, there’s time to visit displays by native plant friendly organizations and conference sponsors. The INPAWS bookstore is an ever-popular diversion as well. And, there’s plenty of good food and camaraderie to be enjoyed by all.

Sponsorship & Exhibitor Options

The INPAWS Annual Conference is a great place to showcase your business or non-profit organization. The conference attracts avid naturalists, conservation activists, landscape professionals and gardeners who will be interested in your products, services or mission. Last year’s conference drew more than 300 attendees, and this year we expect even more. 

For businesses, organizations, and individuals wishing to support the conference, we have four levels of sponsorship available, three including the option of an exhibitor table. We also offer non-sponsoring not-for-profit groups an exhibitor table for a modest fee which includes one conference registration. Follow the links below for all the details.
