Admission Policy

New England GROWS is a professional conference and exposition designed specifically for the green industry. Green industry professionals, educators, students and members of allied professions are invited to attend. The New England GROWS is not recommended for children under the age of 16. In the event that you do bring a child, a $10.00 badge-processing fee will be assessed. Everyone is required to wear a badge issued by New England GROWS to enter the educational conference and exposition. Transferring or lending a badge to another person is a violation of show rules and a misrepresentation to exhibitors and management. Anyone wishing to sell products or services at New England GROWS must contract for an exhibit space. Selling on the trade show floor without an exhibit booth is unfair to other exhibitors and is strictly prohibited. Violation of these policies will result in expulsion from the show and confiscation of the badge.

Consent to Use of Images

Registration and attendance at, or participation in, New England GROWS constitutes an agreement by the registrant for use of registrant's image and/or voice in photo- graphs, videotapes, electronic reproductions and audiotapes of New England GROWS.

Cancellation Policy
