New product contest deadline extended

New product contest logoOver 5,000 people are coming to the show and one of their top priorities is to see the latest products at the new product contest. Let’s give them something to look at!  This is our opportunity to show off how vibrant and innovative our industry is by featuring the numerous new products and technologies now offered in the irrigation and specialty markets.

The 2018 New Product Contest deadline for applications has been extended to Sept.14. Applications are being accepted for the following general categories:

  • agriculture irrigation
  • golf irrigation
  • landscape irrigation
  • landscape lighting
  • specialty

There must be at least three entries from different manufacturers to create a category. The specialty category is for products that are not an integral part of an irrigation system or landscape lighting system. If there are three or more products that can make a unique category, applicants will be notified.
