MANTS_2018.jpgBy RSVPing for this Connect Meeting, you are only signing up to gather with us at the Lord Baltimore Hotel lobby bar on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, from 5:00-7:00 pm. Drinks/foods on your own tab. Afterward, you may wish to remain at the hotel for dinner or form a group to eat elsewhere.


NOTE: This Connect Meeting event is open to all GardenComm members and prospective members, whether you attend MANTS or not. This is NOT a registration for MANTS access nor for the Media Breakfast, you will need to sign up for those separately.  To register for MANTS as press, send an email to – she will send you a link for press registration. Once approved, she will then send you an invitation to the Media Reception/Breakfast and you will need to RSVP back separately for that.

Those who wish to gather for a group (Dutch-treat) lunch on Thursday, January 9, 2020, should meet in the Media Room at 11:45 am. We will then go as a group where to eat at 12 noon. In the past, we have found the Cafe 100 across the street to be fast, uncrowded, and easy, but we are open to other suggestions.

For those who want to stay overnight in Baltimore, book your hotel room through the housing bureau. Most of us who are staying overnight have chosen the Lord Baltimore Hotel for convenience, good service, and low price.

Finally, we need volunteers to help us staff the GardenComm Booth on the exhibit floor. To sign up to help for one or more hours, contact Kirk Brown at
