Are you prepared for GIE+EXPO 2019?

The Green Industries Biggest Event of the Year

The Green Industry and Equipment Expo is one of the most exciting times of the year for everyone in the green and construction industry. There will be attendees and exhibitors from all over to attend this event. Dealers, retailers, contractors, land managers, and landscape professionals alike will all be in attendance. Over 1000 exhibitors will be there to show off new products, educating, and networking.


GIE+EXPO  is well known for its informative workshops. This year is no different. Each day, there is a unique set of workshops that will cover everything from fleet structure to growing your sales! Each is designed to help you improve your daily operations and expand your margins.

The various demonstrations seem endless at GIE and new features continue to get added to the schedule. There is something there for everyone and each addition seems to be more exciting than the last. In one interesting demonstration, you can see how a backyard hardscape can be built in just 2 days. In another, a 40-foot tree will tower over all in the showroom and maintenance professionals will be there to teach everyone about arborist techniques!

If that does not interest you, there are other events that may pique your interest. Called one of GIE’s "most attractive features," the 20+ acre outdoor demonstration area is just outside of the Kentucky Exposition Center. Many exhibitors will have their newest products out and ready for use.

Even after the show room shuts down, there will still be so much to see. Each night will have a concert with crowd favorites. Once again, The Crashers will be in attendance. They will be kicking things off Tuesday night before the show begins. The band always puts on a great show no matter where they play. This will be their third time performing at GIE. In addition to The Crashers, award-winning country music star, Easton Corbin, will be performing, as well as Layla Spring and Cassadee Pope will be performing on Wednesday and Thursday. The Green Industry and Equipment Expo is a must-see event.
