What to Look for at GIE+EXPO

Updated Oct 13, 2014

GIEThis year, the spotlight is going to be on educational seminars and UTVs at GIE+EXPO, which will be Oct. 22-24 in Louisville, Kentucky.

The industry’s biggest show has always offered seminars and classes, but now there will be ones in Spanish.

Attendees can participate in two free Spanish-language seminars from the National Hispanic Exposition Center (NHLA).

Both on Oct. 23, the first seminar will be on “Becoming a Leader in the Green Industry” from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. The second will be 3 to 4:15 p.m. and cover “The Keys to Satisfied Long-Term Customers.”

The landscape industry has a large Hispanic presence, so I think you will see more changes like this for years to come.

Last year, propane-powered equipment made waves at GIE+EXPO. Now, with more of the big manufacturers set to release or update their current UTVs, I’m expecting these vehicles to have a big presence at the show.

There will also be at least two UTV test courses in the 19-acre outdoor area.
