Nov. 15, 2017, Calgary – The Green Industry Show and Conference is back in Calgary for 2017!

The conference is designed to inform and inspire everyone, from designers to arborists, owners to students, growers to contractors. Conference sessions are timely and responsive to industry issues – focusing on a variety of topics with 32 one-hour sessions over the two days. There are three full-day pre-conference workshops on Nov. 15, designed for more in-depth technical level professional development. One for greenhouse growers, one for landscape contractors/estimators and one is for those interested in winter container design.

Conference session highlights include landscape pest show and tell sessions with Dr. Ken Fry and landscape design sessions with Joe Salemi.


Bob Reeves is speaking on the power of soil and Barbara Crowhurst has two sessions for garden centre professionals that include driving traffic to stores and increasing retail sales. In addition there will be informative and engaging sessions on growing your business, managing work-life balance and the latest in horticultural and business technologies.

In addition to the educational opportunities, all conference attendees have access to the Green Industry Show. 
With over 250 booths, it is the largest green industry show in Western Canada and is an annual must-see event.
