The huge success of Landscape Ontario’s Snow and Ice Symposium has resulted in it needing to find a larger home for the 2010 edition.

For the past number of years the symposium took place Landscape Ontario’s home office in Milton. This year it will take place at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex, on Sept. 1 and 2, in conjunction with the Municipal Equipment and Operations Association - Fall Trade Show. In addition, the Ontario Parks Association will provide an educational component.  

Day one at the event is entitled, Build-A-Bid put on by the Snow and Ice Management Association, while the Sept. 2 portion of the show is the trade show and symposium. “The two events being held together will definitely open up a new stream of delegate to the partner associations,” says Gilles Bouchard, Landscape Ontario’s director of events and trade shows. “The added delegate count will be greatly appreciated by all exhibitors and having various levels of educational symposiums and technical demonstrations will provide great knowledge.”

Snow show also in Ottawa

As of press time, little information was known about the snow and ice symposium scheduled for Ottawa, other than it will take place Sept. 14,  at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, from  8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Look for the August edition of Horticulture Review, LO e-news, or www.hortrades.com for additional information as it becomes available.
