By edited by Sarah Bunyea

Those interested can submit a proposal by May 15.

The Irrigation Association, Fairfax, Virginia, has extended its call for presenters for Industry Insights at the 2020 Irrigation Show and Education Week to be held in San Antonio Nov. 30-Dec. 4. With thousands of irrigation professionals attending each year, the show is a prime opportunity to showcase the latest in the industry.

All topics related to the irrigation industry will be considered; however, presentations on the following topics are requested:

  • impactful case studies, including project manager participation
  • long-term water savings using new technology
  • improved irrigation installation best practices
  • customer retention best practices
  • improving the relationship between contractor and consultant
  • selling to meet customer needs and wants
  • retaining great employees
  • converting irrigation systems from potable water to alternate water sources
  • landscape lighting
  • tips and tools for young professionals
  • women in the industry

Presentations must be nonproprietary and educational in nature, not sales or product specific.
