What can landscape pros do to make up for not being able to attend GIE+EXPO this year?

Landscape Professionals

Richard Bare
Arbor-Nomics Turf
Norcross, Ga.

“In my opinion, most people go to the GIE show to network with their peers from across the country and to see what new products and innovations have been created in the past year. Without the show, we are going to have to do these things via the Internet and old-fashioned calling until next year’s show. Perhaps this will cause us to appreciate GIE more and realize how important it is for us to move forward.”

Paul Fraynd
Sun Valley Landscaping
Omaha, Neb.

“I would recommend attending Virtual Landscapes and Zoom with Champions through NALP. These will be a great way to connect with the best and brightest in our industry for a discounted price.”

“GIE is great networking. That’s the best part about the event. “It’s still going to be a few months before in-person events are rolling again, it seems. There are other ways to network virtually. Form you own Zoom rooms and get talking. You can still network — you just have to be creative and put your ‘can-do’ attitude to work!”

Phil Harwood
Grow the Bench
Grand Rapids, Mich.

“Connect with those who you would have met with in Louisville via direct contact or by joining a peer group.”

Kevin Kehoe
3PG Consulting
Laguna, Calif.

“Attend the Zoom sessions and other webinars. Work with consultants to invest time in forecasting the rest of the year and into spring — revenues, costs and investments.”
