LANDSCAPE ONTARIO CONGRESS 2017The 43rd Annual Landscape Ontario Congress took place on January 10-12, 2017, at the Toronto Congress Centre. LO Congress has over 600 innovative exhibitors and over 12,000 attendees, making it Canada’s largest green industry trade show and conference. It features exhibits with new products, equipment and tools, as well as seminars to help your business flourish.
This year, show exhibitors got creative with their booths. Soil and mulch suppliers turned their booths into mini-gardens. New product developers used their booth spaces for demonstrating their innovative products. G&L Group displayed its range of products and services at a booth where show attendees were invited to sit down for a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
On Tuesday night, the Awards of Excellence Ceremony was held at the International Plaza Hotel across the street. This year, the theme of the show was “Paint the Town Green”. As presenting sponsor, G&L Group provided an illuminated ice sculpture for the event and donated a weeklong stay at a luxury 3-bedroom condo in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.
The show host, Breakfast Television’s Frankie “Flowers” Ferragine, presented awards to the winners in the following categories: Landscape Construction, Landscape Maintenance, Landscape Design, Landscape Lighting, Landscape Irrigation, Interior Plantscaping, Garden Centre, and Growers.
On Wednesday night, all attendees were invited to the Tailgate Party – a free event with dinner, entertainment and great networking opportunities.
