Event brings growers new ideas, information and opportunities to connect within the industry:
300 booths on display at 2013 Canadian Greenhouse Conference
A full conference program complements the trade show featuring speakers from across Canada, the US and Europe. Cairnie: “It is a challenging time for the horticultural industry in Canada, and the CGC supports flower and vegetable growers with new ideas, information and opportunities to connect within the industry.” Water and nutrient management will be covered extensively. "This year we have a big focus on sustainable and responsible water management," said Cairnie. Government regulations are becoming more stringent and this has opened new opportunities for innovation. The speakers program and trade show will feature new tools for growers to comply with environmental policies and still produce quality, profitable, sustainable crops. Additional topics include: labour issues, pest management, annual and perennial production and marketing.
In conjunction with the conference two bus tours are planned for October 8th: one for vegetable growers and one for flower growers. The vegetable tour will travel to Leamington, Ontario, Canada’s premier vegetable growing area and visit large scale operations with a focus on new water treatment techniques. "The bus tour is a great Canadian Greenhouse Conference tradition" said Cairnie. “Canadian growers are innovators and this is an opportunity for people to see the latest techniques used in real-time.” The flower tour will visit three well-known Niagara area operations with the emphasis on pest management.
Next to the trade show, bus tours and the speakers program, the Canadian Greenhouse Conference is also the perfect place to network. "It is not only about greenhouses, but also about fun," said Cairnie. "We have a popular happy hour and banquet dinner, and of course, there is all the excitement that Niagara Falls has to offer - A terrific conference experience you won’t want to miss!"
