Dealers, retailers and lawn & landscape professionals can go online for updates on events and features planned for the 2008 GIE+EXPO (the Green Industry & Equipment Expo). Online registration for the October 23-25 tradeshow in Louisville is available at www.gie-expo.com.
Warren Sellers, show director, said many of the event’s popular features will return, including the three-day outdoor demonstration area, free concerts, the Dealer Club and the Green Industry Conference. He said plans are in the works for new surprises and the return of some old favorites from the Green Industry Expo and the International Lawn, Garden & Power Equipment Expo. “Last year we were a bit limited on space,” he said, “because an exhibit hall adjacent to our show floor was under construction. This year we will have unlimited space for the 650 exhibiting companies and attractions like the New Product Showroom, on-the-floor workshops, additional industry meetings and receptions.”
GIE+EXPO is sponsored by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, Inc. (OPEI), Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) and Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS). In addition to the website, information can be obtained by calling Sellers Expositions, 800-558-8767 or 812-949-9200.
