Registration is now open for GIE+Expo 2019. The industry’s largest annual gathering is set for Oct. 16-18 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Online registration is available at www.gie-expo.com, and early bird registration is $15 through Sept. 5.

GIE+EXPO is sponsored by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, Alexandria, Virginia, the Professional Grounds Management Society, Forest Hill, Maryland, and the National Association of Landscape Professionals, Fairfax, Virginia.

According to Kris Kiser, managing partner of GIE+Expo and president of OPEI, the combination of new products, demos, networking opportunities and dynamic education makes the show a must-attend event for industry members.

“GIE+Expo is the place to be for landscape professionals and dealers who want to take their company to the next level,” says Kiser. “Plan to land in Louisville this October for the industry's biggest show – it's the place to be if you’re in the outdoor living and equipment business.”

The show floor will open for dealers Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 11 a.m. Dealers, distributors, retailers and the media are invited to this exclusive preview. All attendees are able to attend beginning at 3 p.m. and are invited to attend a welcome reception until 7 p.m. Thursday hours for both indoor and outdoor exhibits are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Friday, the indoor exhibits will be open 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and outdoor exhibits will be open 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

GIE+Expo registration includes several opportunities to win prizes. Attendees will have the chance to win both cash and product prizes valued at up to $20,000. Entries for the Fabulous Friday Giveaway and UTV Giveaway are included with show badges, and many exhibitors plan giveaways for attendees who visit their booths during the show.
