iLandscape is the Illinois area’s brand new show geared towards the lawn and landscape industry. The three day show features opportunities for lawn and landscape professionals, equipment dealers and construction businesses to view the newest products, technology and best practices.
iLandscape is owned and managed by the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association (ILCA).
iLandscape was conceived to right many of the wrongs of past tradeshows. iLandscape will offer a brand new experience in a convenient and modern venue. It will inject value into the show for attendees and exhibitors. It will gather the best minds in the green industry as part of its educational program. Lastly, it remembers to have fun with lively keynotes, evening entertainment, and a venue that allows for the party to continue well after the show closes for the night.
iLandscape is the show for today’s landscape professional. It is a show you will look forward to, enjoy, and talk about months after the show has concluded. iLandscape is the show that midwestern landscape professionals deserve.
The difference between iLandscape and previous green industry tradeshows is that iLandscape is listening. For years, exhibitors and attendees complained about the high costs of downtown shows. iLandscape intends to be different by:
investing in the show by adding entertainment, social events, keynote speakers, and other features, on top of improved marketing designed to attract attendees to the iLandscape experience.
involving everyone by not having education compete against the show floor for attendees.
increasing the value to exhibitors with cost savings and increased attendance.
iLandscape knows that it will be successful when it accomplishes these three goals.
