One-day regional shows organised by councils could be the way forward for the industry following the first parks and grounds care trade show at Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay, earlier this month.
The joint, non-profit-making initiative by Conwy Borough Council and Vitax Amenity attracted 40 exhibitors and 650 visitors.
Conwy Borough Council principal parks officer Peter Barton-Price said: "I thought it was a great event, a first for Conwy.
"We're certainly happy with the way this show has gone and we aim to put another event on next year with more advertising."
Joint organiser and Vitax Amenity technical sales adviser Colin Turner confirmed plans to link with other councils - possibly starting in the North East.
A few exhibitors were disappointed more people didn't attend the event but most agreed the idea of regional shows is good.
"This morning we had some serious enquiries and some demonstrations to follow up," said FGM Claymore technical support Paul Bayliss. "The idea is right and so is the location. This show has potential. We'll be back."
A Husqvarna representative added: "It's an inaugural show so there wasn't the volume of people, but the quality was there."
