09 May Tradeshow Report – March/April News and Notes
After a blistering start to 2016 in January and February, “tradeshow season” finally slowed down in March and April giving Sod Solutions time to put on producer and end-user events like the Celebration Maintenance Schools and the Show & Tell day with the University of Florida sports field crew. Unlike the large national conventions the first part of the year, the events to start spring are typically smaller. We attended the South Florida Turf Expo in Davie, Florida and the Michigan Sod Growers Conference. In April we talked with landscape architects in Texas at the Texas ASLA Conference and Show in Ft. Worth. Then visited with the University of Georgia staff at the Southeastern Turfgrass Conference UGA in Tifton, Georgia.
May kicked off with the North Carolina ASLA show in Winston-Salem while at the same time the Turfgrass Producers of Florida annual conference took place in Gainesville, Florida. A couple of months aimed at hitting very important parts of our industry. This slow
season is getting ready to gear up as we hit summer.
