That was the theme of the conference this year. Thank you to everyone who attended the 2019 Client Conference! Aspire entertained and educated 200 participants from over 80 landscape, snow and construction companies. Attendees were treated to nearly 25 break-out sessions, round table discussions, as well as a fun opening reception at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel.
So, now that things have settled from the Client Conference, here’s a recap of some of the highlights from this amazing event.
According to participant reviews, we delivered on the conference promise to provide in-depth sessions focusing on the software and technology. Many of the key people shaping the industry were present and delivered sessions addressing the needs and solutions for our growing industry. Kevin Kehoe, Managing Partner of Aspire kicked off the conference discussing the direction of technology for the industry.
The speaker roster included Ken Thomas and Ben Gandy from Envisor Consulting, Jay Murray from Greenius, Greg Herring from The Herring Group, Kurt Brown from Agilis Systems, Dylan DeGrave from CardConnect, and Mike Rorie from GIS Dynamics, Ken Taylor from John Deere, along with many other industry leaders.

The conference closed with a two-hour executive panel discussion facilitated by Kevin Kehoe. It was a great session as the attendees heard the panelists talk about their vision and strategies for growth and profitability as well as the technology investments they are making to get them there.
