The live hardscape demonstrations are back by popular demand for Hardscape North America 2019. Frank Bourque will lead the demonstrations with the theme: Hardscape Construction Meets Extreme Efficiency – Let’s Build a Backyard in 2 Days.
Bourque and his team will teach attendees about installing hardscapes, segmental retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, lighting, technology and more. Each one-hour demo is eligible for one ICPI or NCMA Continuing Education hour.
The demos will be held in the new Hardscape House, an outdoor pavilion that is under roof and adjacent to the 20-acre Outdoor Demonstration Area. In addition to the demos, the Hardscape House will be the location for the HNA 2019 National Installer Championship as well as exhibitor displays for hands-on testing.
Both contractors and dealers can add the demonstrations for $65 or can upgrade their trade show registration to include the VIP Pass for up to 50% savings on education. The VIP Passes, $229 or $189 for ICPI/NCMA/BIA members, include access to all six demos as well as seven conference sessions for contractors or three dealer sessions and the dealer networking breakfast.
“The demos are a perfect learning opportunity. Frank Bourque and his team bring valuable expertise on products, efficiency and installation techniques that will give both contractors and dealers the competitive edge,” said Charles McGrath, Executive Director of the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI).
