Attendee FAQs

What’s a “hosted” event?

The “hosted” event format means qualified attendees receive a complimentary conference package, including hotel accommodations, meals, recreation and 1:1 meetings with vendor partners.

How much does it cost?

For qualifying turf + ornamental professionals, the only cost is your flight. Lodging, food, drinks and golf expenses are on us!

Why should I attend?

In addition to the learning opportunities and 1:1 meetings with our partners our attendees consistently rave about the networking and relationship building:

“This event truly exceeded my expectations. I gained more from this event than any I have ever attended.” — Dayna Wagner, General Manager, Fit Turf

“I love the networking, networking and networking, golf and specialized vendor meetings. It is one of my favorite events.” — Andrew Zeihler, President, Zeihler Lawn & Tree Care

“Thanks for a great event. We had some great discussions with the vendors/experts and also good networking with the other attendees!” — Josh Bare, COO, Arbor-Nomics Turf

What’s a 1:1 meeting?

The LM Growth Summit’s 1:1 meetings are pre-scheduled, sit-down meetings between our lawn care professional turf + ornamental attendees and leading suppliers. They’re an opportunity to discuss both sides’ operations, and whether the opportunity for a future business relationship exists. These meetings typically comprise the morning hours of days two and three of the event.

What are expert office hours?

Expert office hours are another of the valuable learning opportunities the LM Growth Summit provides. LM invites various industry experts to provide attendees with advice on specific facets of their business. Attendees can stop by at any break in the action to get consultation on things like finances, HR, leadership/strategy, legal, marketing, mergers/acquisitions, operations management, safety/risk management, sales, technology & IT services and more. Exact expert office hour details will be available closer to the event date.

Where does the LM Growth Summit take place?

The LM Growth Summit is held at the beautiful Reunion Resort in Orlando, Florida. All meetings, networking events, meals, golf, etc., are held on the grounds, and everything is within walking distance.

How do I qualify to attend?

To attend you must be a decision-maker from a lawn care company with $500,000-plus in annual revenue in the Turf + Ornamental Care segment.
