The Canadian Greenhouse Conference (CGC), slated for October 5 and 6 this year, is moving to the newly-designed Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Started in Guelph in 1979 as a way for industry stakeholders to network, share knowledge and conduct business, the CGC has hosted annual conferences in Toronto for the last 10 years.
“We’re excited about the move to Niagara Falls,” says Sandy Carlton, chair of the CGC trade fair committee. “We’ve revitalized the conference and will be showcasing greater opportunities for networking, education and entertainment. The Niagara region is home to a large percentage of our stakeholders and supporters. We anticipate this move to be a positive one and look forward to future expansion.”
Since its inception, the CGC has grown to more than 150 exhibitors and regularly attracts more than 1,800 attendees. The speakers program will be international in scope, attracting industry leaders and academics from North America and Europe.
This year, the conference will feature an innovative workshop led by the Flower Council of Holland. General Manager Ivo Brautigam and Marketing Director Dirk van Gemert, both from the Flower Council of Holland, will share successful marketing strategies used in Holland today and provide insight on application of these strategies within the North American market.
