ORLANDO, Fla. – (August 30, 2021) The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) welcomed back legacy-client the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association (FNGLA) for 2021 The Landscape Show, held from August 25-27. Offering a diverse mix of companies exhibiting plants, trees, hard goods, equipment and services, The Landscape Show hosted nearly 6,000 industry professionals generating an estimated economic impact of $15.4 million.
With a theme of “Together Again,” show organizers were eager to return in-person since its last event held in 2019. Attendees participated in workshops, engaged in networking and saw the newest plant material. The show offered dozens of educational programs, industry CEUs, peer-to-peer exchanges, and inspiration to grow landscaping and nursery businesses.
“Returning to the Orange County Convention Center to host The Landscape Show was like returning home,” said FNGLA Chief Operations Officer Linda Adams. “With demand high, and supplies tight, buyers and sellers were eager to reconnect.”
As the nation's largest state nursery and landscape association, FNGLA’s The Landscape Show is a testament to how in-person trade show and events can be held safely and how the OCCC is doing Business Better than Usual.
