61st Annual INLA Trade Show

Iowa State’s annual Shade Tree Short Course is once again teaming up with the Iowa Nursery & Landscape Association’s Trade Show. The partnership brings exhibitors an even bigger, better opportunity to connect with potential clients by highlighting the best of both worlds and incorporating INLA’s long-standing trade show into the traditional ISU Shade Tree Short Course educational sessions.

The Iowa Nursery & Landscape Association will host an entire day specifically designed for INLA members. The day will feature Iowa Certified Nursery Professional (ICNP) certification testing and a continuing education program for current ICNP’s.
