It’s nature’s time to plant – Autumn Trade Expo 2017
NGIQ hosted Autumn Trade Expo on 15 March with 37 stallholders and 130 businesses buying and ordering on site at Brisbane Showgrounds.
Ben Peacock from Republic of Everyone and Claire Tindale-Penning from Hort Innovation presented an update on the 202020VISION program, and launched the booklet “What’s Growing On?”
We were joined by members of Australian Institute of Landscape Architects and Australian Institute of Landscape Design Managers, who took the opportunity to speak with Ben and Claire on the levy-funded program which encourages 20% more green spaces in urban areas by 2020.
NGIQ members were impressed with the number of new buyers and the amount of forward orders, and based on the success of the Day, the Committee is already planning for the next Autumn Trade Expo in March 2018.
Thanks to our supporters, Evergreen Connect, Norwood and Hort Innovation, and Committee members Kieran Studders (Big Leaf), Rick Warwick (Bamboo Down Under) and Josh Waterworth (Waterworth’s).
