2022 Montana Green EXPO        January 4-6, 2022         Billings, Montana

Montana Green Expo

MNLA holds the Montana Green Expo each year in early January. The Green Expo includes two components: a Trade Show and a Convention. The Trade Show includes 75+ exhibitors. Attendance is open to anyone who works in the horticulture industry, though MNLA members enjoy reduced registration.

Educational Seminars

The Convention includes 15-20 hours of educational seminars for which a registration fee is imposed. Nationally recognized experts are invited to address a wide range of topics covering both horticulture and business management interests. MNLA members receive a substantial discount on registration fees for all Convention seminars as well as discounts on booth space in the Trade Show.


According to Montana Green Expo attendees, the best part of the Expo is a feature that can scarcely be advertised and isn’t really even on the schedule. It’s the networking; getting together with old and new colleagues, sharing successes and failures. While we’ve tried to formalize it with a couple of events like the “Breakfast of Champions", panel discussions, and “Great Green Ideas,” much of the best networking happens in the hallways between seminars, in the aisles of the trade show, or during gatherings at the end of the day.

Enter the Annual MNLA Green Expo Contests!

One of the most enjoyable portions of the annual Green Expo Banquet is the Awards Contest. MNLA members have the opportunity to submit the projects they have been working on around the state, and (we may be biased), but they do great work! Winners are announced at the Banquet, as well as in their local newspaper. This is a great opportunity to inspire your fellow MNLA members with the work you do, and also gain recognition in your local community. Details for each contest can be found below.
