Hardscape North America Brings the Latest Industry Technology Under One Roof
Hands-on Opportunities and Classroom Sessions Provide Unmatched Take-Home Value
From the latest tech tools and outdoor features to apps that enhance productivity, new technologies in the hardscape industry continue to emerge, and Hardscape North America brings them all together in one location. In classroom settings and in manufacturers’ exhibits, attendees will have opportunities to learn about – and even get hands-on with – the newest innovations. HNA is set for October 20-22, 2021.
Technology on the Show Floor
With access to both HNA exhibits and the co-located GIE+EXPO, attendees will find technology throughout the tradeshow floor and in the Hardscape House and Outdoor Demo Area. Exhibitors will be showcasing high-tech audio and lighting systems that can be controlled where you are, vacuum lifting systems in varying sizes to suit every project, dust-control devices to reduce workers’ exposure to respirable crystalline silica, 3D visualization systems to turn drawings into immersive environments and much more.
Also on the show floor, the new Drone Zone will allow attendees to fly a drone in a netted area with an expert trainer. Hourly sessions will cover using drones for marketing, water management, thermal imaging, multi-spectral analytics, GIS mapping and more. In addition, a Drone 101 session will teach beginners about FAA Airspace and Basic Regulations.
Conference Sessions will cover hot tech topics for contractors, including how to level up your selling game with drones and time-lapse videos, capturing online reviews, leveraging your projects to create compelling marketing content, and increasing your sales with landscape lighting. Each Conference Session is approved for ICPI Certified Concrete Paver Installer and NCMA SRW Installer continuing education (CE) hours.
Hardscape Now sessions, led by Frank Bourque, will demonstrate how to use the most efficient tools as well as installation techniques for the latest hardscape features – audio and lighting systems, as well as fire and water features.
Dealers can benefit from a series of software discussions, hosted by Bob Clements International. Four 40-minute sessions featuring BlackPurl, Lizzy Software, Ormandy Software and Ideal Computer Systems, will be Thursday afternoon.
