Members of the landscape lighting sector got together on Feb. 8 at the Teatro Conference and Event Centre in Milton, Ont., for the annual Landscape Ontario Lighting Conference.

The educational component featured three industry experts from across North America who shared their ideas and experiences on topics such as product sales, system design and installation methods.

Jamie Riddell from John Deere Landscapes/SiteOne Landscape Supply attended the event as both an exhibitor and an attendee. “There were some very interesting design techniques demonstrated,” Riddell said. “Ken [Martin’s] award-winning presentation was very well received by people in the audience.”

Riddell says the event is also a great place to see cutting edge technology and also see what companies in the industry have to offer. The ability to meet with industry suppliers and network with industry peers are popular reasons why the event is attended.
