NALP Opens Registration for ELEVATE

The conference and expo takes place September 10-13, 2023, in Dallas

(Fairfax, VA., May 8, 2023) —The National Association of Landscape Professionals opened registration for its annual conference and expo, ELEVATE, which takes place September 10-13, 2023, at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Dallas.

ELEVATE is the national conference and expo for landscape maintenance, design build, lawn care, irrigation, and horticulture professionals offering management-level education and exceptional networking and peer learning.

“The attendee reviews and feedback from the first ELEVATE conference were exceptional – like nothing I’ve seen for a new conference in my decades in association management,” said Britt Wood, NALP CEO. “We are thrilled to deliver such an inspiring, fun, and exciting conference and expo experience that enlightens and accelerates growth for attendees.”

ELEVATE’s education will focus on four key areas: team building (recruiting, retaining, and developing employees), customer service and the customer experience, business and finance, and operations. ELEVATE is designed  for industry CEOs, decision makers, and key management staff members.

Extensive networking opportunities, the chance to see the latest innovations at the expo, and interactive “campfire” education sessions on the show floor create an immersive learning experience.

“ELEVATE is all about building connections with the best in the business said Wood. “ELEVATE brings together some of the top company owners, CEOs, directors, managers, HR, and sales professionals to share their knowledge.”
