Those were the days

In 2003, GIE only had 6,000 attendees and took up 100,000 square feet. It was held in St. Louis that year, but the directors were considering moving it to a “convention city,” like Orlando, Fla., to help the show gain more traction. Clearly it has, thanks to merging with the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute’s International Lawn, Garden & Power Equipment Expo in 2006, even without being held in a location like Orlando. GIE+EXPO takes up roughly 500,000 square feet of space in the Kentucky Expo Center, and that doesn’t include the space for outdoor exhibits and the conference rooms where Landscapes talks are held. Will you be attending the show this year? Tweet us at @landscapemgmt and let us know what you’re most excited about.
