2021 Annual Conference, Chicagoland, Illinois

September 28-October 1, 2021


Are you located in the northern and eastern half of the United States or eastern Canada? Then there is probably an Eastern Region IPPS member near you willing to share information on plant production and propagation! Our members are growers, researchers, teachers, breeders and more in both production nurseries and in public and botanical garden settings. This is a unique mix of people you won’t find in other organizations!

Steve Castorani, Owner, North Creek Nurseries:
“Being a member of IPPS keeps my company and me current on trends in the industry and in the world of plant propagation and production. It also offers a great opportunity to get to know and share experiences with others who have the same love of plants that I do. IPPS hosts the best annual meetings offering subjects that are relevant, people that are engaged and friendly. Fantastic tours to interesting places, many behind the scenes that you would never see without being a member. Plus, the yearly proceedings are an added benefit. All of this at a cost that is far below what other professional organizations charge.”


 Support our IPPS Eastern Region Foundation which provides research grants and offers academic scholarships to college and university faculty, students and personnel as well as to industry propagators and researchers. The Foundation has made a commitment to develop future horticultural leaders as well as support scientific research that will pioneer new directions for the industry.
