George Schmok, Publisher LC DBMS "'Cause a little bit of summer is what the whole year is all about." - John Mayer Wow . . . Can you believe summer is almost over, kids are starting to go back to school and trade show season is, once again, upon us . . . We'll be seeing some of you in Texas, at the TNLA show, which has been growing steadily over the past several years. Then it's back home to California for the Landscape Expo in Long Beach, then on to Louisville for GIE+EXPO/HNA, followed by the ASLA Show in Philly, and then the IA show back in Long Beach. For those we don't see at those shows, hopefully you will be going to one (or more) of the trade shows sponsored by your state association, which are happening all across the nation this autumn. Even in this time of webinars and Amazon, trade shows are still the best place for Landscape Contractors to see 'all things landscape' in a condensed setting. Want to buy new equipment? Go to the show. Want to find new wholesale suppliers? Go to the show. Want to catch up on the latest technologies and best practices? Yep . . . Go to the show. And want to see old friends, peers and your biggest competitors? Well . . . They will be at the show as well. So hopefully, your summer has been a good one, with lots of business and lots of fun. And hopefully, as summer turns to fall, you will make the time to get out to an industry trade show, support the vendors who are working to make your life easier and add another layer of education to help your business grow and thrive in the years ahead. We'll see you out there . . . God Bless . . .
