Bruce Morton, Ottawa director and chair of GreenTrade Expo, has announced two great changes happening for GreenTrade Expo in 2016 and 2017.

“The committee has continued to make great changes to the trade show, this year celebrating its 23rd anniversary,” says Morton.

The inaugural suppliers’ awards, known formally as The Ottawa Awards of Distinction, were an astounding success last year, with a sellout ballroom of 130 members. This success has led the GreenTrade committee to change the awards venue. This year’s celebration will take place on location at the Trade show, the EY Centre, with room for even more celebrations.  

Back by popular demand is the Casino Night, sponsored by Permacon. This year there will be three new awards: the Legacy Award, the Community Volunteer Award and the New Member Award. This ticketed event will take place on Feb. 9, from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m.

The second great announcement from GreenTrade Expo is that it will be a two-day trade show. Presented by the Ottawa Chapter, GreenTrade Expo continues to expand in exhibitors and attendance.  The organizing committee has decided, after requests by exhibitors and careful thought and investigation, that 2017 will present a two-day trade show, with the awards taking place the Wednesday evening of the event.
