The Green Industry Show & Conference (GISC) is returning to a live, in-person event this fall.

Set for Nov. 18-19, 2021, the tradeshow and conference will take place at Westerner Park in Red Deer, Alta.

“After a successful virtual event in 2020, what people want is GISC live and in person,” states the press release. “The central location for the event allows GISC to continue as the hub for the green industry on the Prairies. GISC will continue to offer an industry-leading trade show along with top-notch education. This year’s event theme is ‘Let’s Get Together!’ not only in reference to the return to a live event but also the focus on the social aspect that everyone missed.”

GISC previously alternated between Edmonton and Calgary, with the last in-person show taking place in 2019. Last year, they pivoted to a virtual platform.

According to organizers, moving to Red Deer will make GISC more accessible to attendees across Alberta as well as provide ample complimentary parking.

“A central location has long been sought for GISC, a venue however was elusive.  Coming out of the pandemic and looking for ways to bring everyone safely together again, now was the time to make it happen,” says Joel Beatson, CEO of Landscape Alberta, host organization for GISC. “This is an exciting evolution of Western Canada’s largest trade show and conference, we are excited that the new venue will bring more people together. Together to learn, connect and grow.”

The GISC will return with a 37,000 sq. ft. trade show, 10 hours of live education over two days, pre-show tours, a growers auction & dinner, tailgate party, and AGGA Garden Party.

Details will be released as they come available. For more, visit www.greenindustryshow.com.
