With the holidays and the end of the year right around the corner, we encourage Bay Area Landscape Pros to continue to follow COVID safe practices. But Pros also need to look ahead and consider attending one of the many landscape trade shows that will take place in 2022.

And why would they want to that?
Seasonal landscape trade shows offer unmatched opportunities for Landscape Pros to:
  • | connect with peers
  • | learn about new solutions
  • | build industry credibility
  • | gain insights on the trade
  • | evaluate competitors
And that just for starters.

Old school landscape trade shows deliver new opportunities

For those who dismiss landscape trade shows as outdated business gatherings that busy pros shouldn’t waste time on, nothing could be further from the truth.

Even if you generate new business through online or automated engagement, today’s ultra-competitive business environment demands that business owners and managers build relationships with many important constituents including prospects, partners, vendors, and customers.

Time to get out, get connected, and get inspired

Research reveals that there’s no better way to create new opportunities for your business than in a face-to-face, concentrated environment where participants have self-selected and identified themselves as interested in a specific industry and related solutions.

In a tailored environment like that, trade show attendees are highly likely to have interest in what you offer, are ready to network, and may even make purchases on the spot if your solution fits their needs and their budget.
“Every time I go to a landscape trade event, I learn something that can improve our operations or services. Even better, I get to connect with new people and gain insights from others on how to succeed in our local market.”
