Green & Growin’ 21 FAQ

What are the dates for G&G’ 21?

G&G’ 21 is scheduled for January 11-15, 2021 in Greensboro, NC. As in past years, Specialty Classes/Certifications will be offered on Monday; General Education Sessions will be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday; and the Marketplace will be held on Thursday and Friday.

What is the status of G&G’ 21?

Currently, we are planning an in-person event that complies with less-restrictive safety guidelines that we hope will be in place in January 2021. Meantime, we continue to monitor the public health environment and government recommendations/restrictions to ensure that we have the information needed to make an informed decision that is both in the best interests of the presenters, exhibitors and attendees and complies with government directives.

When will registration open?

Registration for G&G’ 21 is scheduled to open on Monday, November 16, 2020.

What are the options for holding G&G’ 21 if it cannot be held in person?

Since we are unable to predict what safety guidelines may be in place this January, we are exploring the option of offering online education and a virtual tradeshow. We are also exploring the possibility of holding the tradeshow under current social distancing guidelines. In this scenario, the number of exhibitors will be restricted, and space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

When will the final decision be made regarding the status/format of G&G’ 21?

Our current timeline calls for a final decision no later than the opening of registration on Monday, November 16, 2020. However, this date may change as we continue to monitor the situation and hold ongoing discussions with the Sheraton Greensboro and the Greensboro Coliseum. Meantime, we continue to plan G&G’ 21 under the assumption it will be an in-person event.

If G&G’ 21 is canceled or offered in a different format, will I receive a refund?

Attendees: By the time registration opens, we will know the format for G&G’ 21. Therefore, attendee refunds will be subject to current policies as outlined on the G&G’ website. If the public health environment worsens during the timeframe between registration and the event, we will revisit the policies to ensure everyone is treated fairly.

Exhibitors: As mentioned above, we are planning an in-person event and following current deadlines for booth payments. If G&G’ 21 is canceled, you will be given the option of receiving a full refund OR rolling over your payments to G&G’ 22. G&G’ 20 payments that were previously rolled over to G&G’ 21 are not eligible for a refund and will be rolled over to G&G’ 22. If G&G’ 21 Marketplace is offered in a different format, you will be given the option to participate at a yet-to-be-determined fee. If you choose to participate, you will be given the option of receiving a refund of the difference in cost OR rolling over the difference to G&G’ 22. If you choose not to participate in the new format, you will be given the option of receiving a full refund OR rolling over your payment to G&G’ 22. Refunds for G&G’ 21 will be issued by check.
