Each year, the Garden & Floral Expo attracts industry professionals – retailers, growers, garden centre owners, florists, gift and mass merchant retailers from Canada’s largest horticultural marketplace. In a recent survey conducted by Landscape Ontario, 89% of Garden & Floral Expo attendees cited new products as the number one reason for attending.

Additionally, the 2010 Expo is a great place to discover industry trends, attend informative workshops, source new suppliers and network with industry experts from all different sectors of the business.

Landscape Ontario will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Garden & Floral Expo, with great food, drinks and music, recognizing industry stakeholder who have helped shape the organization’s vision.

Scheduled for October 19, 2009, the Garden Centre Symposium will feature Tom Shay, Kip Creel and Jeff Morey. It is being held at the Toronto Congress Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada as part of the Garden & Floral Expo trade show.

Tom Shay of Profits Plus is well-known as a fourth-generation business owner, author, columnist, business coach and speaker. He shares and teaches from his frontline experience to challenge attendees with proven methods of building business with existing customers, increasing their overall return on investment and having fun at the same time.

As president of Standpoint Marketing Research, Kip Creel brings invaluable information on shifting demographics and how the different expectations of Generation X & Y shoppers are shaping the garden centers of the future. His insights will help retailers to create the innovative programs that will drive incremental sales gains.

As the publisher of several industry magazines and producer of the Independent Garden Center show, Jeff Morey knows that independent garden center retailers cannot allow themselves to be comfortably content. His messages will reinforce the need for the industry to keep pushing the edge of the envelope with great merchandising, superior product selection and uncompromising quality.
