The Grow-Tech team was out in full-force at the 2018 Tropical Plant International Expo (TPIE) in sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Hosted by the Florida Nursery, Growers, and Landscapers Association, TPIE is always an excellent opportunity for our team to get together with industry members and plant lovers to learn more about horticultural trends from hundreds of exhibitors.
As always, the Broward County Convention Center was beautifully decorated with displays from hundreds of horticultural companies from around the world, giving us the chance to catch up with and learn from our peers. With five full acres of exhibition space, new plants were aplenty, and attendees were able to access informative presentations on a number of topics, ranging from consumer trends to interiorscapes.
One of the cooler aspects of the expo had to be the career fair, which was put on to help encourage young people to join the horticultural industry. It was encouraging to see the next generation of horticultural industry leaders active and engaged at the expo.
TPIE is a great event for networking, learning, and growing your business. We at Grow-Tech were thrilled to have the chance to share our innovative growing media products at the expo. It’s always great to have the opportunity to discuss with industry professionals how our FlexiPlugs, BioStrate, ZenPlug, AeroNT, and other products can help improve the efficiency of their operations and the growth of their plants.
The trip was a whirlwind, but a fun and informative one. It was great to see so many of our customers and colleagues stop by our booth. Thanks to everyone who came over to learn about our products, and we will see everyone at TPIE 2019.
