The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) is partnering with industry expert Judy Guido to present 'Shark Tank'. This will be one of power sessions taking place at the LANDSCAPES 2017 edition, which will be held at GIE+EXPO.

On October 19th, from 9:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., a Shark Tank-style power session will bring together three entrepreneurs, who will present their ideas for new industry products and services. If their ideas tempt the “sharks,” they may receive an investment from them.

The power session will bring together three entrepreneurs and four industry leaders, including Judith Guido, chairwoman of Guido & Associates; Frank Mariani, CEO of Mariani Landscape; Mike Rorie, CEO of GOILAWN; and Doug York, CEO of Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply.

Guido is still accepting proposals from committed entrepreneurs who are seeking an investment, have a solid business plan, and are passionate and ready to grow their business. The sharks are interested in all types of companies in the green industry. If you are interested in being considered for a slot to present your idea in front of the “sharks,” email Guido at
