Landscape Ontario, in partnership with the Municipal Equipment Operators Association and Ontario Parks Association, staged the fall equipment show on Sept. 15.

The annual event, formerly known as the snow and ice symposium, was held at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium. While there wasn’t any snow, it was a brisk and chilly day for those exhibitors outside the arena. Several live demonstrations were on the show floor, hosted by Ontario Parks Association.

Landscape Ontario hosted two sessions in conjunction with the trade show: Paul Johnson from County of Wellington presented ‘Snow Operations’ and reviewed many anti-icing methods, and Rob Kuhn from Environment Canada talked about our wacky weather this year, and what to expect for this winter. According to him, we are apparently due for a lot of snow in 2012!
