With GIE+EXPO and Landscapes 2016 only eight days away now, there are a number of things you can take care of before you even hit the show floor.
The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) has session handouts available for all of the educational events for Landscapes 2016 available here. Only those registered for the conference have access to the handouts. Attendees can take a look at the points ahead of time to see what sort of questions they would like to ask.
The Landscapes 2016 app is also now available on iTunes and Google Play. Users can search for exhibitors, request meetings and locate booths on the show floor with the app. The schedule shows all the available educational sessions, workshops and other events.
Individuals can select their favorite exhibitors and events to create a personalized planner for the whole show. The app also pulls in all the tweets related to GIE+EXPO and Landscapes so users can read, comment and check out the buzz at certain booths.
