The Landscape Show scheduled for September 14-16, 2017 has been cancelled. This decision is based on the best available information in light of the statewide dangers posed by a powerful Hurricane Irma and out of an abiding concern for the safety and safe travel of The Landscape Show exhibitors, buyers and attendees.

All FNGLA meetings and FNGLA events at The Landscape Show have also been cancelled. These include: The Knowledge College educational sessions and workshops; Tapped-In networking for the under-40 industry professionals; FNGLA Landscape Awards ceremony; and, The Landscape Show Golf Tournament benefitting FNGLA’s Endowed Research Fund at the University of Florida.

Pre-registered attendees for The Landscape Show and associated FNGLA events can expect to receive full refunds.

All those who made hotel reservations through FNGLA’s housing bureau, Eventsphere, will be contacted by Eventsphere for information about your hotel reservations.  Those who made hotel reservations on your own need to directly contact your hotel regarding your reservations.

FNGLA will be in contact with The Landscape Show exhibitors about potential options regarding their booth registration fees.

Meanwhile, FNGLA is at work in response to Hurricane Irma.  For those whose business operations and/or employees are suffering, FNGLA has created an online platform for you to post and telegraph your immediate needs.  And for those who are fortunate to be spared severe damage, there’s a place on this platform to offer your resources (such as equipment you’re willing to loan, labor, materials, etc.).  Just go to: www.fngla.org/irma!  Also, links to some government agencies and related information are found there.

The decision to cancel The Landscape Show was made with everyone’s best interests given the circumstances beyond FNGLA’s control.

Please be safe!
