2020 Virtual New Product Contest

New products are in the spotlight!

Seeing new products, technologies and services is a top priority for the majority of attendees at the Irrigation Show.

  • landscape irrigation
  • landscape lighting
  • specialty agriculture irrigation*
  • specialty landscape irrigation*

*The specialty categories are  products that are not an integral part of an irrigation system or landscape lighting system.
