FALLS CHURCH, Va.-Attendee registration is now open for the Irrigation Association's 2011 Irrigation Show, Nov. 6-8, and Innovations in Irrigation Education Conference, Nov. 3-8, at the San Diego Convention Center. Attendees who register by Sept. 28 will receive discounted rates.
New in 2011:
*The expanded education conference will feature a series of one-hour irrigation seminars designed to reinforce irrigation industry best practices. These agricultural and landscape irrigation seminars will cover concepts, implementation and "how-to's." IA-certified professionals will earn one continuing education unit for each one-hour session attended.
*The exhibit hall will feature its first pond and waterscape pavilion. The International Professional Pond Companies Association will also be hosting its seventh annual INFO TANZA event at the show. Three days of INFO TANZA pond and waterscape educational seminars are being offered (separate registration is required).
*On the show floor, a new reception will kick off the exhibition giving attendees more networking opportunities.
*An expanded New Product Contest-offered exclusively for Irrigation Show exhibitors-will allow submission of an unlimited number of products for consideration. In addition to naming a winner in each category, a second-place prize category has been added to recognize more innovations.
Several hotels are offering a special Irrigation Show rate, but rooms must be booked no later than Oct. 11. For show details and to register, visit www.irrigationshow.org.
