The European Landscape Contractors Association is excited to be at LANDSCAPE- The Industry Trade on the 27th and 28th September 2023 at the NEC in Birmingham. Held over two full days with a packed timetable, LANDSCAPE is designed to be an invaluable platform for networking, learning and exploring the latest trends shaping the future of landscaping. Established as the essential trade event for discerning landscape and garden designers, contractors, architects and facilities managers, LANDSCAPE is proud to be the go-to platform to source market-leading products for use in high end projects worldwide.


The ELCA will be exhibiting at the Show as well as running a CPD accredited seminar. Headed by Egbert Roozen, Secretary General for the ELCA, alongside Wayne Grills from BALI, the seminars will cover “Profiling the Gardener and Landscaper in a Larger Coalition and Attracting Workers for the Green Sector”. If you fancy joining one of these seminars, they are scheduled Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th from 14:15- 15:00 and entry is free.


Alongside this, LANDSCAPE’s seminar timetable boasts a wide range of other learning opportunities, including multiple talks from other valued associations such as the British Association Landscape Industries and the Association of Professional Landscapers. The seminar timetable also features specialist How-to Theatres such as ‘The Landscaper’s Coach Theatre’ which boasts four fantastic sessions from Paula Warman and other panellists. Topics include: “How to: Specify for Success - Mastering Product Selection for Your Landscaping Business”, “How To: Grow Your Online Presence: Harnessing the Power of Social Media for Your Landscaping Business”, “How To: From Leads to Landscapes: Mastering Lead Generation for Your Business”, and “How To: Set the Groundwork for Success: Building a Thriving Landscaping Business”.


The team at LANDSCAPE carefully curates the show to appeal to all aspects of the industry and works closely with their Partners to make sure the event is essential for Contractors and Designers alike. As part of this, LANDSCAPE makes sure to run multiple networking events. This year they will be running a Soirée in conjunction with the Society of Garden Designers. This ticketed event is specially designed to help attendees mingle with like-minded professionals and make meaningful connections. Not only for garden designers, the Soirée will also provide the opportunity to exhibitors, suppliers and contractors to make new contacts, making this evening of food, music and fun not one to miss! These opportunities to connect with peers and to learn about new developments from those working at the top of their field is part of what makes LANDSCAPE central to the industry.


LANDSCAPE works hard to support the industry and maintains relationships with over 100 Event Partners. With an international airport right on the doorstep, LANDSCAPE welcomes a diverse audience and so seeks to connect with even more international associations representing the landscaping industry. Industry associations and renowned media titles play an integral role in supporting LANDSCAPE as they understand the significance in fostering connections and driving advancements.
