The Canadian Greenhouse Conference (CGC) will be held in Hall 5 of the International Centre, 6900 Airport Rd, Mississauga (Toronto), Ontario, Canada, from 6-7 October 2010.
The annual CGC began in 1979 with the purpose of organising a speaker program for greenhouse growers on the latest in practical crop production and marketing information. Speakers are brought from all over the world to talk about the latest in research and technology. Also growers take part in the program sharing their own experiences. The event also gives growers and greenhouse suppliers a forum to network through the tradeshow.
Since 1979 CGC has grown to 200 exhibitors and attracts over 2500 attendees. A typical conference consists of:
• 2 days of speaker sessions for greenhouse flower and vegetable growers
• 80,000 sq. ft. trade show with over 150 exhibitors
• ‘New Varieties’ and ‘New Products’ displays showing the latest introductions to the Canadian marketplace
• Two separate pre-conference bus tours: one tour to greenhouse flower operations, the other to greenhouse vegetable operations.
This year, the keynote speaker is Greg Whittstock (Aquascapes Inc.) who will talk on ‘Re-energising your Business’. Another keynote speech is ‘Taxing Carbon: How it’s impacting the North American Greenhouse Industry’. The conference program also includes a strong focus on IPM and research updates.
