As Platinum Sponsors, Belgard took the 2016 Hardscape North America tradeshow by storm with our largest booth in our history with the show. Congratulations to James Widdecomb from Ironwood Landscaping, winner of the $10,000 Belgard Booth Cash Prize Giveaway! Below are some additional highlights from HNA 2016.

One of the most popular attractions of the booth was the Belgard outdoor living and dining room, which showcased a Bordeaux Series Belgard Elements fireplace, Tandem® Wall, and a variety of paver products.

Outdoor Living and Dining Room

Design and installation professionals were particularly intrigued by the versatility of the Tandem® platform and use of Charcoal colored Old York™ pavers as a border. Booth attendees were also given a sneak peek at our new Satura™ color technology that is currently in development and will be regionally launched in 2017.

The Belgard outdoor kitchen was another popular stopping point, where attendees could visualize the efficiency of combining Belgard Elements kitchen units and Tandem® Modular Grid to quickly build out a kitchen in a fraction of the time that it would take to build a similar design with traditional methods and materials.

Belard also offered a “booth within a booth” to showcase various styles of Mirage® Porcelain Pavers, which included a sneak peek at the new NooN style of paver to be release in 2017 that provides the look and texture of natural wood in a durable and stain-resistant porcelain paver.

During the show, Belgard was proud to sponsor two amazing events – the HNA Installer Championship and an after-hours social event for contractors and dealers. Congratulations to the Oak Leaf Landscaping team, who were named winners in the installation competition amongst 24 teams from across the U.S. and Canada that were judged on creativity, safety, craftsmanship and compliance to industry best practices.
