The attendees included commercial and residential landscape contractors, maintenance specialists, landscape designers and architects, students and landscape service and product suppliers.
Across an expansive floorplan they were greeted by 80 exhibitors, which included nation-leading suppliers of both soft and hard landscaping products, business services, machinery and more.
“We were happy to see how the Industry embraced our first show in 2018,” said Megan Flower of LVML. “To see both our exhibitor and attendee numbers increase significantly in 2019 is a testament to the need for such an event in the landscaping industry.
“The industry is hungry for knowledge about the latest innovations and trends, and The Landscape Show provides a one-stop-shop for this kind of information. It also provides networking opportunities and we were delighted to see the amount of business being discussed this year.
“Education is also vital for all practitioners; from students through to established landscape industry stalwarts, our seminar series provided an opportunity to make sure all of those people have the knowledge to perform at their best in order to uphold the high standards of professionals in our industry.”
Megan says that many of this year’s exhibitors have already nominated that they will be returning for the next iteration of The Landscape Show and that they expect to welcome aboard many suppliers who attended the event to assess its viability for promoting their products at future shows. “They saw this as THE place to be promoting their product to a captive, targeted landscape industry audience.”
Sarah Liacos from LVML Supplier Member, Gardens at Night, said, “As a returning exhibitor, we value the opportunities The Landscape Show provides. We’re able to present our latest range and services to engaged designers and industry peers and it provides a place to meet new contacts, discuss future projects with existing clients and network in a relaxed setting.”
