Plenty to see and do at BALI Landscaping Show
Published: 21 May, 2012
STONELEIGH PARK: With a full seminar programme, the regional heats of the WorldSkills UK Landscape Gardening Competition running, a busy demonstration area, plenty of new exhibitors and a new ContractorZone in place, the 2012 Landscaping Show has plenty for visitors to see.
The show takes place on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 June at Stoneleigh Park, near Coventry and will introduce eight industry experts who will be speaking in seminars across both days.
Topics include the opportunities opening up for landscapers following new legislation; the Olympic Legacy and how it is being delivered; the impact landscaping may have on climate change, and detail on the new Joint Council of Landscape Industry's (JCLI) Homeowner's Consultancy Agreement and Landscape Contract.
Visitors will also be able to watch live demonstrations of the latest products and benefit from the expertise of industry specialist companies.
The show has also introduced a ContractorZone this year for the first time. Following discussions, the National Contractors' Forum (NCF) – a group of major contractors working in the landscape and grounds maintenance sector – has reached an agreement to partner with BALI and the official launch of the BALI-NCF partnership will take place at the show over lunch on the first day.
With exhibitors old and new, the show is also part of BALI's 40th Anniversary celebrations with the Association holding a gala dinner on the first evening.
