Irrigation Show schedule announced

The 2009 Irrigation Show, the annual trade show of the Irrigation Association, will be held Dec. 2-4 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. The show offers irrigation professionals a unique opportunity to connect with industry peers and learn strategies and skills to improve their bottom line.


Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the show schedule will vary from years past. Education classes will run from Tuesday, Dec. 1, to Saturday, Dec. 5. Certification exams will be offered from Wednesday, Dec. 2, through Sunday, Dec. 6.


This year’s schedule will offer attendees a chance to experience more aspects of the show. IA will not offer classes on Thursday, Dec. 3, to allow attendees a full day to walk the show floor and attend the general session. The show will feature exhibitors from all aspects of the irrigation industry displaying the latest in irrigation technology.


In addition to exhibitor booths, show highlights will include IA’s annual New Product Contest, a Smart Irrigation Month idea gallery, the IA bookstore, and common interest group and committee meetings. Held concurrently with the show, the Innovations in Irrigation Technical Conference will feature presentations in three tracks: turf/landscape, agriculture and water management.


Full registration for the 2009 Irrigation Show includes access to all three days of exhibition, the Innovations in Irrigation Conference, and general session. Irrigation professionals that sign up for classes or exams will receive a complimentary “Exhibition Only” pass to the expo floor.
