Congress 2021 goes virtual: Congress Connect
Canada’s top horticultural trade show and conference, Congress, has been staged since 1979 by Landscape Ontario. The 2020 event hosted over 12,000 participants.
With no easing of pandemic restrictions on the horizon, organizers are moving forward with a virtual format to provide green professionals with outstanding education, product information and networking opportunities. The reimagined event is called Congress Connect, and will launch Jan. 12-14.
“I never expected to rethink everything I knew about my career, and I must say, it’s energizing!” said show manager Heather MacRae. “We have been hearing messages of support and enthusiasm from attendees and suppliers alike. One thing is clear: whether it’s virtual or live, our Congress brand is trusted, respected and valued by the landscape industry.”
MacRae encourages landscape pros to sign up soon, and see what the new digital format has to offer. The Conference component will include over 30 targeted professional development topics, and attendees can also opt to view an online Awards of Excellence presentation.
