The Creating Landscapes Trade Show, Capel Manor College
A new trade show for the landscaping and gardening industry is to take place in October at Capel Manor College, Enfield, in London.
The Creating Landscapes Trade Show will run on 25 and 26 October, 2011, and bring together horticulture practitioners with product and equipment suppliers and manufacturers.
The show has come out of the success of the websites Landscape Juice and the Landscape Juice Network, the online home of landscapers and garden designers in the UK.
Phil Voice, owner of the Creating Landscapes Trade Show, said: “The event will translate the vibrant and exciting ‘juice’ we have been sharing on the network into something physical.
“Over the past five years the websites have been online destinations where people have been able to make connections, both in offering advice and assistance, but also in providing feedback on products and services.
“So it seemed a natural progression to create a show where people could meet up, discuss new ideas and find out more about the products landscapers and garden designers use in their day-to-day work.
“Creating Landscapes breaks the mould when it comes to conventional trade shows because we go on working for our exhibitors twenty-four hours a day via the internet, long after the physical event has finished.”
Headline sponsor of the show is Marshalls Plc, who will be showcasing new products and trends to help landscapers grow their own business.
And visitors will also be able to see some of the newest electric-powered hand tools, garden machinery, bulb and plant suppliers, wild flower turf growers, sculptors and artists as well as business professionals to help with back-office tasks.
“The Creating Landscapes Trade Show is tightly focused on the needs of the landscaper and garden designer, be that the tools of the trade or services and ideas that will help them run a better business,” said Phil Voice.
“I am sure visitors to the show will meet exhibitors who are able to provide helpful advice, but who are keen to ensure that a connection remains in place both online and offline, ensuring the voice of the practitioner continues to be heard.”
