On The 1st of November 2018, Pro Landscaper hosted its first live trade event titled FutureScape Africa at the LookOut V&A Waterfront.
We welcomed 412 delegates from around southern Africa and had a total of 560 people in attendance on this day with 44 SACLAP Registered Firms through our seminar registrations. We were blown away by the volume of delegates who joined us from Gauteng, KZN and neighbouring provinces and by the sheer need for an event of this type. We would certainly call this a great success and we are thrilled with the rate at which our initiatives are growing and quite importantly showing promise for up-coming students to be enticed by the industry.
With chock-full seminars and a great audience and exhibitor atmosphere, we are certain that our maiden voyage (with a very fitting venue, overlooking the Atlantic) has set the tone for the many more events to come which we are so looking forward to hosting. We know that not everything can be perfect right-away, so we thank our audience and visitors for their understanding. Whilst we loved the LookOut, our next venue is going to be bigger & better with an overriding theme of igniting the industry- and many more chairs for those seminar rooms that were popping at the seams. We have already begun to conduct surveys to make sure we bring you the very best at our next trade event.
We had some brilliant seminars and outstanding speakers deliver talks on industry related topics, which we are eager to elaborate on and add to for our next event to ensure we account for even more sectors of the industry.
We managed to secure some wonderful prizes and setup partnerships which made the day a great success. Thank you to Samsung, Nespresso, PalntR, Felco, Reliance and all the seminar sponsors. A big thank you to bloc outdoor who provided the furniture all of our delegates were seen enjoying on the deck.
We are certainly ready to take on our next event and we look forward to seeing all our readers there.
We have already started searching for our next venue, so keep an eye out for these progressions as we secure our 2019 spot!
