Register for Equip Exposition (Louisville, Oct 15-18) for Only $25 Right Now

Landscapers, dealers, and equipment manufacturers aiming to grow their businesses might pay hundreds, even thousands of dollars, to attend business improvement seminars and workshops. But under a special spring promotional price of $25, they can register for Equip Exposition, held October 15-18, 2024, at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC), where they will gain access to industry-focused business leaders, education and certification classes, enjoy peer to peer networking, and try out the most innovative outdoor power equipment in their industry.

“What we offer for $25 is a tremendous value,” says Kris Kiser, President and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), which owns and manages the show. “Landscapers, tree care, irrigation, hardscape, pool and spa and other specialists, as well as dealers and manufacturers, can come to Equip to interact with and learn from the best brains in the game. You get what’s coming next and real-world solutions, and you gain access to the 30-acre Outdoor Demo Yard where you can try out the latest, cutting-edge equipment.”

Equip is the only show in the outdoor living industry where people can dig, cut, mow, mulch and test equipment before buying it.

“This year, we’re adding new, essential certifications and educational resources to help industry professionals take advantage of the increasing demand for their services,” Kiser says.

He cites the new trend in “backyarding,” moving many traditional indoor activities like dining, working and entertaining outside, to homeowner yards, parks and other green spaces.

“The family yard is a growing hot spot for family life, and the real estate trends show the demand for more green space is only going to increase in coming years,” says Kiser. “Equip attendees are prepared to maximize the market trends ahead.”

For only $25 registrants have access to: 

  • Kevin O’Connor from This Old House as keynote speaker. Sponsored by Kress.
  • Expanded Spanish-language education focused on helping crew leaders become better managers. 
  • Workshops on current issues impacting landscapers and their profitability, as well as valuable certification sessions that can help landscaping entrepreneurs expand their offerings.
