Honorarium Requirements

New England Grows, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization. Unlike "for profit" tradeshows and conferences, New England Grows' proceeds go directly back to the industry to support the good work and programs of regional green industry organizations. We also strive to keep our attendee fees as low as possible, so we look to our speakers to help us keep our expenses to a minimum.



Please submit two professional references regarding your previous conference presentation experience.

Is there someone from the New England green industry who is recommending your presentation? If so, please provide that person's name and contact information.

Due to the high volume of responses, we are unable to respond to each submission. All those selected to participate in the conference as speakers will be contacted shortly after the deadline.

Thank you for your interest in New England Grows!
