April 1, 2010 – The CanWest Hort Show will be showcasing the best of horticulture inside the world’s newest and most prestigious convention centre – ‘Under the Green Roof’ at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The show takes place from Sept. 29-30, 2010 and features an education program, first class industry tours and a new product showcase.

“This is such a great opportunity for Can West,” says show chair, Michelle Pain. “Exhibiting in a facility that boasts a green design and featuring a six-acre living roof is a natural fit for our industry.” Show delegates who travel from throughout North America, will now have a chance to check out this award-winning site.

The Vancouver Convention Centre’s Green Roof is the largest living roof and the largest non-industrial living roof in North America. It houses thousands of indigenous plants and recovers rainwater for irrigation. Its also located steps away from the 2010 Winter Games’ Olympic Flame.
