What People Are Saying...

This inaugural ELEVATE event was one for the history books! Wow! Our team was impressed from start to finish with the event space, decor, quality of educational sessions, networking events, and socials. Just WOW! Great job NALP, this is what landscape professionals have been needing!

Nate Moses, Precision Landscape

I thought this was the best industry conference I have attended in the last 20 years. You know it was a good show when you wake up the day after, mentally and physically exhausted, but still missing it just a little bit.”

Doug McIntosh, McIntosh Grounds Maintenance, Inc.

When I leave ELEVATE, it does for my business what church does for my faith. I come out energized and motivated to improve my path.”

ELEVATE turned out to be an energizing, revitalizing experience. It came at a time of the season when everyone feels a bit drained. It certainly made me feel more focused and determined to finish the year strong.”
