Updated Feb 20, 2013

The GIE+EXPO workshops at the 2010 GIE+EXPO tradeshow will include hardscaping topics this year. The event will be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky with workshops scheduled to run Thursday through Saturday, October 28-30.

The full Hardscape North America educational program will include approximately 124 hours of hardscape-specific sessions, starting October 26, but you can explore how hardscaping services can add to your profits by attending “Adding Hardscape Installation to Your Company’s Success” on Thursday or Friday morning.

As a bonus for signing up for this session attendees will receive free access to a series of live demos on Thursday and Friday afternoon. Demo topics will cover compaction for paver installation, outdoor living enhancements, basic paver installation, water features, stone veneer applications, permeable pavement construction, raised patio contraction and segmental pavement maintenance.

The event is sponsored by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, Inc. (OPEI); Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) and the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS).

The GIE+EXPO workshops are $50 each and are open to all GIE+EXPO attendees. Pre-registration for the sessions is required. Pre-registration for a three-day pass is $10 per person. The tradeshow admission for those who register onsite will be $50.
