Northwest Green Industry Conference

A two-day event, the Northwest Green Industry Conference is WALP's/WSNLA's premiere event where Green Industry professionals come for growth and learning opportunities from an exceptional line-up of presenters representing the Green Industry.

The Conference offers a myriad of activities designed to connect great people with great ideas.  Whether you are joining your association peers to share your leadership, energy, and enthusiasm while exploring current trends and learning first-hand what Green Industry professionals throughout Washington State are doing to advance their businesses, or are an industry partner attending offering information on products and services vital to the Industry, the Northwest Green Industry Conference provides exceptional experiences and essential tools that make individuals and their organizations more successful.

Field Day

This special “hands-on” event provides the Landscaping Industry the opportunity to not only see products in person like at a regular trade show, but to actually operate many of the items being displayed. By attending you will also be given the opportunity to...

  •  “Try before they buy”
  •  Learn about new products you might have
  •  Network with you and other suppliers
  •  Learn new ways to use your equipment
  •  Compare products/equipment side-by-side
  •  Access a unique staff training opportunity

And although Field Day is a chance to use and test out many different pieces of equipment, it's much more than that! Other Field Day activities you won't want to miss include:

  • Industry demonstrations
  • Education sessions
  • Lunch
  • Opportunity to win drawings

Golf Tournament

Summer days are filled with social events, but WALP's Golf Tournament is one that must not be missed!  In August, members and their guests tee off on an area golf course and compete for bragging rights amongst their colleagues and peers.  A post-tournament reception offers ample opportunity for visiting and networking. 

Industry Seminars
