2010 Regional Expo

The IAHP’s 2010 Regional Expo will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2735 Crittenden Drive, Louisville on Thursday, October 28, 2010. The hospitality room format will provide tabletop displays for green industry suppliers and manufacturers to promote their products and interact with contractors. The intention is for contractors, manufacturers and suppliers to meet in a social setting and discuss the challenges and best practices of the hydroseeding industry.

This networking opportunity is open to all contractors, suppliers and manufacturers in the industry as well as those who are considering the addition of hydroseeding services to their businesses. The Hilton Garden Inn is next to the Kentucky Exposition Center where the 2010 GIE Expo will be held October 28–30, 2010. Display tables will be provided free of charge to IAHP member suppliers and manufacturers. Display space can be reserved by contacting hydroseedingassoc@yahoo.com or calling 412-241-2340.


The IAHP’s new website is under development and will be launched later this summer. The new website will feature areas of interest for contractors, suppliers and users of hydroseeding services. The IAHP is dedicated to promoting relationships among industry experts and those who are new to the industry. Education and information are a top priority. The IAHP’s HydroSeeding Support forum is available to all industry participants. The forum currently boasts 29122 posts in 4291 topics by 881 participants.

This is an outstanding business resource for contractors and suppliers alike. It offers the opportunity to interact in real time with multiple participants. The forum is also open to users of hydroseeding services both residential and commercial. Those who seek to know what hydroseeding is, how it works, solutions to challenges, best practices, the newest and best products and a plethora of information can find answers or post a question on the forum. You’ll find the HydroSeeding Support forum at www.hydroseeding .org/forum.
