Upcoming September Trade Shows – Calscape (San Diego) & ASLA (Washington DC)

We’ve got several trade show/conferences coming up, and hope that you’ll be able to join us at one of them!

The Calscape show, put on by the Plantscape Industry Alliance, is taking place on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before Labor Day.  It promises to be a great event!  One highlight will be a field tour on Wednesday of Greenscaped Building/Good Earth Plants facility in San Diego. They have our TerraScreen® living wall indoors, a VGM® edible garden outdoors, and a VertiGreen® Hybrid as well.  They will have a broad spectrum of green roof and living wall technologies on display.

At the show we’ll be showing off the versatility of the TerraScreen® interior living walls on stands. This combination allows us to make a “mobile garden”, as one of our clients called it,  and really liberated the use of interior green walls.  We’ll also be showing off the newest 3rd generation VGM® module, VertiGreen® Hybrid, as well as our pots, planters, and irrigation.

The conference is being held at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, located right downtown.  If you want to find out more about attending, call us for details!

The National Am. Soc. of Landscape Architects meeting will be taking place at the Washington, DC Convention Center from September 10-13.  We love the opportunity each year to connect with our landscape architectural clients, and this year is no exception. The location is central enough that anyone from the Mid-Atlantic seaboard should try to make it.

While in town, you should go by the United States Botanical Gardens (on the National Mall) and check out the VGM® modular living wall that they created. It is a great coincidence for us – last year we had just installed the Garfield Park Conservatory living wall in Chicago before the ASLA, and this year the US Botanical Gardens.  There is a very large living wall specified for an exciting new Sir Richard Rogers-designed project on New Jersey St., but that doesn’t appear to be going in until next spring.

We’re also working with the firm of Oehme Van Sweden on this year’s ASLA Legacy project, which will benefit Coolidge High School in Washington.  We’ll be donating several large containers to go at the entrance of the garden that they are creating at the school.  We’re always pleased to be associated with projects that expand the awareness  of landscapes and green building in schools.

If you are interested in getting a show-only day pass for the conference, give us a call at 800-542-2282. We still have a few passes left, and would be glad to see you at the show!
