The Green Industry Conference (GIC), held in conjunction with GIE+EXPO and Hardscape North America, will be debuting a new feature this year.
The conference will be including a Learning Lounge concept this year in Louisville, Kentucky from Oct. 23-25.
The Lounge will be located at the Kentucky Expo center and will include more than a dozen short, 20-minute “TED-talk” style sessions, a “Genius Bar” where people can talk with experts and network and the PLANET Marketplace.
The idea behind the Learning Lounge is based on research that people want fast, educational information in shorter sessions on a specific topic.
The speakers will focus on marketing, sales, financial and human resource strategies for growing and improving the landscape industry businesses.
GIC sessions are approved for PLANET Landscape Industry Certified recertification at 1 CEU per hour of instruction attended.
PGMS and HNA educational sessions also qualify toward recertification.
