Hard Landscaping Show organisers predict 1,000 visitors for inaugural event

Landscape architects, contractors, academics, and garden designers are among visitors who have pre-registered for the Hard Landscaping Show next week.

Around 60 exhibitors have signed up for the show, and organiser Marwood Events director Steven Callaghan said he expected at least 1,000 visitors.

The free Hard Landscaping Show - which is at Coventry's Ricoh Arena from 24-25 March - is in its first year.

As well as exhibitors, the event includes a project awards competition, a garden design "artisan avenue", live demonstrations and a series of seminars.

Also among those already signed up to visit are councils, public and private utility companies and highway maintenance firms.

HW will be leading a seminar at 2pm on 24 March exploring the use of planting in landscaping schemes.

Vistors are invited to put questions to a panel of speakers during the session.

The line-up is:

  • Association of Professional Landscapers chief executive Jason Lock
  • BALI chairman elect Paul Cowell
  • Wyevale Nurseries sales and marketing director Doug Reade
  • Scotscape managing director Angus Cunningham

Questions can be emailed in advance to magda.ibrahim@haymarket.com.
