GISC 2021 Virtual Conference - November 18 - 19, 2021
The Green Industry Show & Conference (GISC) will be proceeding as a virtual event, November 18-19, 2021, to ensure the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff. The recent changes to COVID-19 protocols by the Government of Alberta has created a pathway to live events that was unlikely to be effective for our tradeshow and conference.
LET'S GET TOGETHER! Two of Alberta's largest "green industry" organizations, the Alberta Greenhouse Growers Association and Landscape Alberta, have joined to bring a comprehensive range of first-class speakers to this conference.
THE GREEN INDUSTRY SHOW & CONFERENCE WILL BE LIVE IN RED DEER IN 2021!
The Green Industry Show & Conference (GISC) will be proceeding as a live event, November 18-19, 2021, and for the first time it will be hosted at Westerner Park in Red Deer, AB. After a successful virtual event in 2020, what people want is GISC live and in person.
The central location for the event allows GISC to continue as the hub for the green industry on the Prairies. GISC will continue to offer an industry leading trade show along with top-notch education. This year’s event theme is “Let’s Get Together!”; not only in reference to the return to a live event but also the focus on the social aspect that everyone missed.
GISC will be more accessible to more people across Alberta with easier travel from north or south. Combined with ample free parking and multi-day or single day passes, the move will work to make GISC even better for all.
"A central location has long been sought for GISC, a venue however was elusive. Coming out of the pandemic and looking for ways to bring everyone safely together again, now was the time to make it happen. This is an exciting evolution of Western Canada’s largest trade show and conference, we are excited that the new venue will bring more people together. Together to learn, connect and grow.” says Joel Beatson, CEO of Landscape Alberta, host organization for GISC.
For 2021, GISC will include a 37,000 ft2 trade show, 10 hours of live education over two days, pre-show tours, the Growers Auction/Dinner, Tailgate Party, and AGGA Garden Party.
