Strong turnout for Congress 2016
New products, services, suppliers and relationships were the main draws for more than 12,000 attendees at Canada’s largest green industry trade show.
Landscape Ontario’s Congress featured over 600 exhibitors at the Toronto Congress Centre Jan. 12-14, and continued its longstanding tradition as Canada’s premier green industry trade show and conference.
First time visitor Amanda Anderson, owner of Lipstick Landscaping in Fredericton, N.B., says she attended Congress on the advice of industry colleagues. She particularly enjoyed watching the HardscapeLive presentations. “They were all really good, especially for me because I am just starting out in that area,” she said. “There were a lot of good tips and a lot of good tools – some I have never even seen before.”
Congress also featured 57 education sessions with a wide variety of topics and speakers including a keynote by Eric Durden, the manager of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. The show returns to the Toronto Congress Centre Jan. 10-12, 2017.
