The Irrigation Association (IA) has confirmed the dates and locations for the 2016 and 2017 Irrigation Show & Education Conferences. The 2016 Irrigation Show will be held Dec. 5-9 in Las Vegas, and the 2017 Irrigation Show will be Nov. 6-10 in Orlando, Fla.
The annual show is the world’s largest irrigation exhibition, says the IA. More than 300 exhibitors attend for agriculture, landscape and golf irrigation. The show provides networking opportunities; insight sessions on industry trends and initiatives for water-use efficiency and sustainability; and technical sessions, seminars and education classes.
Revenue from the show supports IA initiatives to benefit its members and the irrigation industry by:
- improving industry proficiency through continuing education;
- recognizing and promoting experience and excellence with professional certification;
- ensuring industry standards and codes reflect irrigation best practices;
- and influencing water-use public policy at the local, state, regional and national levels.
The 2015 Irrigation Show will be held Nov. 9-13 in Long Beach, Calif. For this year’s event, IA has partnered with the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers to host the 2015 Irrigation Symposium in conjunction with the show.
