Retail guru Tom Shay headlines the new Garden Centre Symposium on Jan. 11, 2017 at the Toronto Congress Centre — just part of the new half-day event added to the Congress conference line up to benefit retailers in the green professions.

Shay, a fourth generation small business owner and author, will present The Science and Art of Buying and Selling, and Advanced Professional Selling Skills. The symposium will also feature the Awards of Excellence ceremony for the growers and retailer programs and end with lunch and an opportunity for retailers to get caught up with one another before the spring rush.

For the last 15 years, Ontario retailers have attended Garden Expo in October to take part in Landscape Ontario’s annual Garden Centre Symposium. With the move of Expo into Congress this coming January, retailers now have an event at Congress created just for them.
