Plans are already underway for the Ottawa Chapter’s GreenTrade Expo 2014, Eastern Ontario’s must-attend industry trade show.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013, proved to be GreenTrade Expo’s most successful to date. Moving once again to a larger exhibit space at the Ernst and Young Centre in Ottawa, the trade show floor was sold out. There were more exhibitors, as well as information booths from Landscape Ontario, Ottawa Canadensis Botanical Gardens, Communities in Bloom, and a Landscape Industry Certified Plant Identification challenge. To celebrate the anniversary, it was decided to hold a Tailgate Party, similar to the one held at LO Congress. This event raised over $2,000 for the Ottawa Food Bank.  

Trade show chair Bruce Morton CLP, CIT, of, has been involved since GreenTrade Expo began. President of Ottawa Chapter Ed Hansen, of Hansen Lawn and Gardens, Ottawa, expressed the chapter’s appreciation saying, “GreenTrade Expo is a direct result of the support and guidance of Bruce Morton, whose knowledge, expertise and passion for the green industry has led to Ottawa Chapter’s success.”

GreenTrade Expo 2014 will return on Feb. 12, 2014 to the Ernst and Young Centre, Uplands Drive, Ottawa, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Opportunities to book exhibit space are now available. Work is currently underway to make next year’s event even more of a success than 2013.
