The Green Industry Conference in Louisville, Kentucky is one of my favorite events of the year, partly for practical reasons and partly because that I find it is actually a fun event.
On the practical side, there is no better networking venue than this one. Lawn and landscape professionals and business owners from all over the country all in one place, eager to share ideas and benefit from the experiences of their peers in other parts of the country. The Breakfast with Champions event, which I have had the honor to participate in for the last three years is the single best networking event I have ever participated in. There are around sixty different tables, each with a designated topic to discuss. There is a facilitator, but the magic of the Breakfast with Champions is the interaction between the participants.
There are many other opportunities for networking, too.
And then there is the trade show, technically the Green Industry Expo. One of the largest trade shows in the United States, this is quite an event. It is an opportunity to see what’s new with all of the vendors that lawn and landscape businesses may need (and some they not need, too) There are many interesting and entertaining things outside in the demonstrationarea (remote control mowers, demonstrations of the latest in chain saws, etc.). In addition, there are many training events as well.
If at all possible, this is an event not to be missed. We will be there throughout the event from Wednesday evening unto Saturday morning. We will be at the Breakfast with Champions all three days. We are staying at the Downtown Louisville Marriott. If you would like to schedule a time to meet, just give me a call at 901-351-1510 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
