The CEO/COO session includes a panel of industry CEOs and their number twos talking about how they create strong working partnerships. Companies include: Drost Landscape, Sun Valley Landscaping and Swazy & Alexander. Attendees will walk away with strategic plans for the coming year and there is an optional VIP dinner after the session.

Account managers—the glue that holds many businesses together—can attend a day-long session to hone and learn new customer service strategies that increase customer loyalty and generate higher profits.

“We find that companies are bringing more of their team members to LANDSCAPES,” said Sabeena Hickman, NALP CEO. “We want to provide the best education for every staff position, so that companies that attend reap immediate benefits from the strategies their team has learned.”

LANDSCAPES 2017 is sponsored by John Deere at the Platinum level, with additional support by Caterpillar as Gold Sponsor and Bayer as Silver Sponsor. Education is approved for Landscape Industry-Certified recertification at one continuing education unit (CEU) per hour of instruction attended.
