This year’s FutureScape, in association with TREX, was a huge success, with thousands of visitors attending the event at the ExCeL London on 15 and 16 November.
FutureScape 2022 boasted a series of seminars and award ceremonies, as well as leading exhibitors in the industry.
Three new seminar theatres were added to this year’s event – the Lighting Zone, the Urban Greening Zone in association with Maylim, and the Training, Education and Employment Village in association with GoLandscape.
Pro Landscaper’s Most Influential awards took place in partnership with tigerup!, revealing the top 25 most influential people in the industry, as well as seeing six special prizes handed out.
The class of 2022 for Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation also collected their awards in front of their industry colleagues.
And the winners were revealed for Pro Landscaper’s small project BIG IMPACT Awards 2022 at an evening ceremony, with nine category winners announced as well as an overall Supreme Winner.
At the end of a seminar where representatives of four of industry associations – the British Association of Landscape Industries, the Society of Garden Designers, the Association of Professional Landscapers and the Landscape Institute – showcased their collaborative efforts, the industry’s first diversity and inclusivity charter was signed with a commitment to creating an inclusive culture.
Jamie Wilkinson, managing director of event organiser Eljays44, says: “FutureScape has been a huge success and we are delighted to see everyone in the industry come together to learn and network at the event. We appreciate all the feedback we have received directly and through social media – this really helps us to continually improve. We look forward to seeing you all at the NEC in Birmingham for FutureScape Spring on the 14 and15 March 2023.”
