Successful Indiana Green Expo – Turfgrass Science at Purdue University

Successful Indiana Green Expo

Last week (January 11-13, 2012) the Purdue Turf Program and the Midwest Regional Turf Foundation hosted the Indiana Green Expo (IGE) in cooperation with the Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association. The IGE is Indiana’s most comprehensive green industry educational conference and trade show. It is a time of education, new products and networking with industry members. The IGE featured 90 exhibiting companies from around the country. The 1,700 attendees from Indiana and the surrounding states come from a variety of backgrounds including business owners, managers and staff of wholesale and retail nurseries, landscape management firms, greenhouse growers, golf course superintendents and staff, grounds maintenance departments, landscape design and installation firms, garden centers, consulting firms, educational institutions, suppliers and more! This year’s conference provided education with eight concurrent sessions featuring 60 different speakers including Purdue faculty/staff from Agriculture Economics, Agronomy, Botany and Plant Pathology, Entomology, Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, and Forestry and Natural Resources. The conference was a success again this year and continues to provide information and education among the Midwest turf professionals and the green industry. Mark your calendars for next year’s IGE, January 9-11, 2013.
