Continually learning to serve you better!
Hello everyone, just wanted to take the time to tell you all about the Landscape Ontario Congress 2016 trade show we attended. This was our first time at the show and I can see us being in attendance for years to come. It’s an amazing feeling to be surrounded by so many years of experience, as soon as you walk through the doors you can feel the energy of the room. The Toronto congress center is huge, and equipment is all you can see for what feels like a kilometer. We loved visiting the booths of all our favorite brands, and some that we hadn’t yet had the pleasure of seeing. All of the speakers and booth operators were very knowledgable and had plenty of advice on the best choice of equipment and direction we should be headed. We were amazed by the indoor displays that were setup by local hardscape companies and trade schools. And next year we may participate is some more of the available seminars to further our skills.
Landscape Ontario Congress, tailgate party!
It wasn’t all business and learning at the show. After the trade show ended wednesday afternoon, immediately after the party began! We enjoyed a nice buffet style service and sat at a table with some soon to be friends. It became pretty clear that this party was a great way to meet new people who share the same interest in the “green industry.” I was very impressed with the prizes and giveaways that were available. I got to spin a wheel which won me two drink tickets (boo yah!), while others were entered into a raffle or landed on “busted” and left empty handed. The venue was decorated with some futuristic looking furniture and a elaborate DJ setup that kept the tunes pumping. I was super excited when I saw the numerous pool tables and other arcade style games, made for a great time!
Overall we were very pleased with our first time at the Landscape Ontario Congress and are eagerly waiting for next year’s festivities, I hope to see some of you reading this there!
