Landscape professionals from all sectors looking for the latest information on road and vehicle safety, new products and local suppliers should plan to attend Gear Up For Spring 2019 (GUFS) on March 26.

With free attendance and free parking, this popular event, produced by Landscape Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe Chapter, will return to the Ancaster Fairgrounds in Jerseyville, Ont., for the fourth straight year.

The event includes a trade show, chapter AGM, networking, hands-on demonstrations and a full day of education designed to prepare landscape professionals for a safe and productive season ahead.

Presentations from Ministry of Transportation and Halton Police Vehicle Inspection Unit are a highlight of the day, and feature the latest information on road safety regulations and a mock-inspection of a truck and trailer.

At the chapter AGM, LO members who want to extend their networking opportunities and help to develop and organize chapter events and initiatives can put forth their name for various positions on the chapter board. The chapter holds a number of trade- and family-oriented events, and also works on greening initiatives to benefit the local community.

The event is sponsored by B.R. Dickson Equipment and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To donate a door prize, become a sponsor or exhibit in the trade show, please contact Mary Thompson, chapter coordinator, at mthompson@landscapeontario.com or 416-624-4927.
