Green industry professionals are feeling the weight of the economy on their businesses and purchasing plans for 2010, but missing GIE+EXPO 2009 could mean missing out on the latest industry news and deals. The reality of trade show attendance is the initial cost gets offset by the value generated by attending. This year’s show is October 29-31 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
