The Landscape Expo Seminar/Workshop Submittal Guidelines

Speakers should preferably have a background in academia; vendors with field experience are also encouraged to submit. These workshops are not meant to promote a specific product or service, but to educate landscape professionals in the industry and provide a well-balanced program.

We will be looking for speakers to present new information on various points of view and looking at the timeliness and relevance of the topic. A main focus will be on the potential to engage and attract attendees.

Seminar attendees want to see more on these topics:

• Native Plants
• Design
• Landscape Maintenance
• Lighting
• Soil Health
• Sustainability
• Turf Care
• Pest Management
• Business Management
• Hardscaping
• Composting
• Rainwater Harvesting
• New Technologies
• Pool Building/Water Features

You may submit a request to speak on any of these topics, or any other topic you feel might be of interest to landscape contractors, designers, installers, or maintenance professionals. Each session should be 1.5 hours in length, including 10-15 minutes of valuable Q & A.
