Booth Bingo Contest

With Booth Bingo cards in hand, contestants visit the 25 Exhibitor Sponsors whose logos are printed on the card to get a ‘stamp’ on the Exhibitor's respective squares.

The object is to collect any 5 stamps in a line (row, column, or diagonal) from the Exhibiting Sponsor booths.

Each completed line is worth one (1) ballot which will then be entered in the Grand Prize Draw.

The more Lines ‘stamped,’ the more ballots contestants will receive, the more ballots entered in the Grand Prize Draw, the greater the chance to win the cash prize. Contestants need not be present to win. 

Grand prize draw – $500 cash!



Announcing the Ottawa Landscape Design-Build Challenge!

Established in partnership with Landscape Ontario.


 Ottawa Landscape Design-Build Challenge Sponsors logos - GreenTrade Expo & Construction Show, and

The Ottawa Design Challenge is a project – created under the lead of Lindsey Best – to give the opportunity to teams of Algonquin College and high school students enrolled in horticultural programs to work together with landscape professionals. This collaboration will result in the design and build of an engaging outdoor learning environment on High school grounds for all to enjoy.

How it works – the students will form four teams, each tasked with developing a design for an outdoor learning environment.

Their respective designs will be presented to a judging panel  of industry professionals at the GreenTrade Expo & Construction Show for 2019.

GreenTrade attendees will have the chance to vote on the designs at the show (and their votes will influence the judging panel’s final decision).

The winning design will be announced at the Ottawa Chapter meeting on March 21st.

The design will be installed on the school grounds in the Spring and Fall of this year by Landscape Ontario members.

So, make sure you come out to GreenTrade Expo & Construction Show and vote!

There’s still time to sponsor and/or volunteer.

Please reach out to Lindsey Best at @ (remove the space before and after the “@”), or call 613.915.4010 for more information or to take part in this inaugural event.
