Landscape Ontario hosts sold out Snowposium
Raqib Omer from Viaesys led an outdoor demo on salt calibration.
Snowposium, the annual gathering of snow and ice professionals, was held Sept. 15 at Landscape Ontario’s home office in Milton, Ont. Hosted by Landscape Ontario’s Snow and Ice Management Sector Group, the sold out, one-day conference and trade show had nearly 400 attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers.

Throughout the day, attendees were able to check out the latest equipment and technology from a wide range of exhibitors and hear from industry leaders on many relevant and timely topics. The two outdoor demonstrations were also very popular: salt spreader calibration, with Raqib Omer from Viaesys, and a full commercial vehicle safety check led by Scott Olfield of Tri-Shield Consulting.

Ivan Sikkema from Eloquip said: “We were very happy with the show. We had lots of interest and good discussions with existing and new customers. PS. Lunch was fantastic!”

Wendy Ladd from Jim Pattison Lease commented: “Snowposium is always a great event and it never disappoints. Lots of excitement and excellent information.”

At the conclusion of the event, Gerald Boot, an LO past president and chair of the sector group, recognized the association’s executive director Tony DiGiovanni for his many years of contribution to the sector and wished him well in his upcoming retirement.

Landscape Ontario would like to thank the many sponsors, partners and exhibitors whose support helped to make the event such a huge success. Information on next year’s event, scheduled for Sept. 12, 2023, will be posted to snowposium.ca as it becomes available.
