Welcome to the December edition of Pro Landscaper. We are putting the final touches to this issue after returning from the best FutureScape event, which this year had more trade stands, more visitors and a more packed programme than ever before. Each year we are amazed by how the event continues to grow and improve and believe that it really is where the whole of the landscaping sector comes together to share information, learn from others, find out about new innovations and products, but most of all celebrate the industry as one. We’re also very touched by the emails that are already flowing in with your glowing feedback – we’ll share this on the usual social media channels and online, plus there’ll be write ups on the seminars and debates in the January issue, so if you didn’t make it you will be able to catch up. For now, see photos from the day on pages 20 and 21 of this issue.
When FutureScape was first launched back in 2012 our strapline was one day, one industry, one event and this still runs through the core of the event. Our stats tell us we have a complete mixture of landscapers, garden designers, landscape architects and suppliers with the great and good of the industry all coming together as one landscaping community.
Another point that really hit home is how the industry does and should continue to benefit from the experience of others, sharing, learning, and questioning each other – this not only helps the industry but creates a better understanding of the sectors value and will in time drive it forward. Finally, we would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the speakers, exhibitors and of course the visitors that helped make this the industry’s biggest and most informative event – in fact it’s so nice we’re doing it twice! Yes, that’s right – next year we will be adding an additional spring FutureScape on Tuesday 12 March 2019 so please save the date now.
We hope you enjoy reading this packed December issue and wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year, we look forward to bringing you more exciting features, news and events throughout 2019.
