WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. —The 2021 Indiana Green Expo (IGE) will offer professional turfgrass, landscape and nursery managers recorded and live sessions. Recorded classes will be available Monday (Jan. 18) through Feb. 4. Keynote addresses, a virtual trade show and networking sessions will air live Tuesday (Jan. 19) through Jan. 22, beginning at 10 a.m. (ET) each day.
     Recorded sessions are divided into 12 educational tracks. These include lawn, golf, sports, plant materials, landscape, tree care, business, Spanish, hardscape, production, invasive species and vegetation management. The live sessions will feature two hours of content each day.
     “We were hopeful that we could offer the IGE in person this year, but due to COVID-19 we made the decision to host a virtual conference in 2021,” said Kyle Daniel, a nursery and landscape outreach specialist. “We are excited that we can continue offering education and a virtual trade show to the attendees via live and recorded sessions.”
     The Midwest Regional Turf Foundation and the Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association first joined efforts in 2007 to offer the IGE. In recent years, the conference has had an average attendance of 1,600 green industry professionals.
     Conference registration and additional details are available here.
     Proceeds from the IGE will be used to improve the green industry through research, educational programming and other supporting functions.
