For those unfamiliar with the name, ProGreen Expo can be termed as an exhibition park. Located in a beautiful glass building full of unique architectural design in Denver, Colorado, this building houses an average of six hundred and fifty booths and offers just over a hundred and forty seminars. Every year from the 8th of February to the 11th of February, there are hundreds of exhibitors and attendees including buyers who crowd to see the latest green equipment. For the attendees, the tradeshow hours are everyday from 9 am to 4 pm. However, on Fridays, the tradeshow often finishes a bit earlier around 1 pm.
Seminars are offered everyday of this expo week from 8 am to 4 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (these two days end a bit later, at 5 pm) and Friday, which ends a bit sooner at a around 2:45 pm.
At the end of this week, you usually go back to your businesses full of new ideas and new contacts, ready to implement the new techniques you saw and heard about. With all the benefits available from this trade show, it is well worth it to sign up for membership. For the full four days of the exhibition, members save on the sign-up fee. You may also purchase a 2-day pass, which must be validated at the beginning of each day. This ranges in cost from $120 to $140. If you are in a group and your group is larger than 10 people then this 2-day pass will only cost you $100.
ProGreen is actually extensively sponsored by familiar names such as the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture), the CNGA, the Colorado Nursey & Greenhouse Irrigation, and the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado. With all this wealth of expertise and the ongoing research of these companies and associations, your time will be well spent. You will receive the best advice as to any difficulties you may be having, either because of diseases, soil irrigation or corrosion. Help is available to solve any problem and to meet any difficulty. Of course, you will see demonstrations of the latest equipment and their attributes, which often means that you suddenly feel the need to have new equipment in your greenhouses, on your tree farm or in your landscaping business or on a smaller scale, in your garden. Bear in mind that this helps the economy and the environment at the same time.
