The Irrigation Association announced that it has three conferences planned for the first quarter of 2021. These events will focus on three key areas: landscape lighting, leadership and landscape technology. Registration is currently open for all three events.

The Landscape Lighting Conference will be held on Jan. 11. This conference brings together some of the most talented and successful lighting experts to discuss the latest trends and best practices used in the industry. The schedule will include panel discussions about maintaining a successful lighting business, learning from failures and advanced installation techniques. The Landscape Lighting Conference is sponsored by premier sponsor FX Luminaire and presenting sponsors Brilliance LED, Horizon and Illumicare.

The Leadership Summit will be held on Feb. 10. This summit is open to both seasoned and future leaders and will discuss building skills for success in leading projects, teams and organizations. The schedule includes both expert speakers and panel discussions that will identify the common traps that many business leaders fall into and offer insight for how to build positive, lasting change in your company — all through the lens of irrigation. The Leadership Summit is sponsored by premier sponsor Hunter Industries and presenting sponsors HARCO Fittings, Horizon and SolutionView.

The Landscape Technology Conference is scheduled for March 3. As technology changes the way green industry companies do business every day, it is important to stay up to date on these innovations. This conference will discuss the latest technological advancements in the landscape irrigation industry and how they can improve an irrigation system’s water efficiency, effect overall sustainability and have an impact on a company’s bottom line. The Landscape Technology Conference is sponsored by premier sponsor Rain Bird and presenting sponsors ServiceTitan, SolutionView and Zurn.

“These three events in 2021 round out the IA’s first series of conferences planned for 2020 and 2021,” said Deborah M.
