LANDSCAPES 2016 to Feature Six Education Tracks; New Power Sessions

Registration Now Open for LANDSCAPES 2016

Herndon, Va., July 19th, 2016 - LANDSCAPES 2016, the largest educational event in the landscape industry, will be back in Louisville, Kentucky, October, 19-21. LANDSCAPES is hosted by the National Association of Landscape Professionals and is produced in conjunction with GIE+EXPO and Hardscapes North America.

This year’s convention will feature more than 40 sessions, presented in six different learning formats including town hall meetings; deep-dive workshops; lightning-round sessions; facilitated roundtable discussions; and power sessions. NALP members can also schedule one-on-one 75-minute business consultations with leading business owners who are part of the association’s Trailblazer program.

New this year, instead of one keynote session to open the conference, there will be three “power sessions” each morning that will feature the most in-demand experts.

Education will be delivered in six tracks this year including: leadership; business management; operations; human resources; sales and marketing; and safety and technical.

“Our education line-up delivers vital education for every career position in the industry,” said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, NALP CEO. “When you add-in networking with national experts and the peer learning, it really is a must-attend event.”

LANDSCAPES registration also includes registration to GIE+EXPO, the nation’s largest landscape industry equipment expo.

LANDSCAPES 2016 is approved for Landscape Industry Certified recertification at 1 CEU per hour of instruction attended. PGMS and HNA educational programs also qualify toward recertification.

LANDSCAPES 2016 is sponsored by JOHN DEERE at the Platinum level, with additional support by Caterpillar as Gold Sponsor, and Bayer as Silver Sponsor.
