2015 GIE+EXPO Sets Attendance Record

​Early attendance estimates for GIE+EXPO 2015, held October 21-23 in Louisville, KY, point to an overall jump of roughly 16%. Dealer registrants specifically are up roughly 9%. Landscape contractors attending the LANDSCAPES educational conference, presented by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), are up 20%. Hardscape contractors attending Hardscape North America, which co-locates with GIE+EXPO, are also up double digits. GIE+EXPO exhibit space also reached a record level this year. To that end, Hardscape North America will likely move to the North Hall next year, providing that growing show with some much needed room while also freeing up additional room for GIE+EXPO. Hardscape North America will continue to co-locate with GIE+EXPO through 2018 and OPEI and NALP will continue to partner through 2021 with plans for the show to remain in Louisville through that same period.
