CanWest returns to Abbotsford
CanWest Horticulture Expo (CanWest) is returning to Tradex in Abbotsford, B.C., September 28-29, 2016. The move to Abbotsford in 2015 was a success for the largest horticulture trade show in Western Canada. In 2015, CanWest’s attendance was 36 per cent higher than 2014’s show, including over 2,000 delegates and 1,000 exhibiting staff. The expo is managed by the B.C. Landscape and Nursery Association. This year’s show theme is “Island Life,” and exhibitors are already busy planning their creative booth designs.
To enhance delegate’s CanWest experience, the show will feature the Greenhouse Demo Zone, the Outdoor Equipment Demo Zone, the container competition and the New Product Showcase.
Networking and training opportunities are available through seminars and clinics featuring horticulture experts from around North America. Networking continues over food and drinks at CanWest’s popular Tailgate Party on Wednesday night. Information on the education program can be found at www.CanWestHortExpo.com at the end of June.
CEUs are available for all seminars and clinics. Horticulture students are encouraged to volunteer at the expo to increase their exposure in the industry and earn CEUs.
