Canada’s Premier Horticulture and Green Industry Trade Show and Conference
Now in its 42nd year, Landscape Ontario’s Congress is Canada’s largest green industry trade show and conference - and it's rated as one of the country’s top 10 shows. With over 600 cutting-edge suppliers exhibiting on more than eight acres of show floor, it’s the perfect place to find new products, ideas, equipment, tools, services and connections to make your business grow and prosper. Dozens of inspirational and educational sessions run throughout, making Congress a once-a-year opportunity to learn about emerging industry trends, access products and build new relationships.
Spend a day doing seminars and a day at the show, or mix it up. And don’t forget the special events throughout, like the Awards of Excellence Ceremony or the Tailgate Party. Everything is within walking distance and all the details can be found on these pages, or by giving us a call. Hope to see you there!
