How many of you guys plan on going to MAHTS? They haven't put out a schedule of seminars yet but I'd like to hear some feedback on classes you've liked in the past. I think I'm gonna try to attend a waterscape class. Didn't go last year but did the year before. As winter starts to come any other shows you guys recommend?

I dunno.

Trade shows are becoming a thing of the past.

We go to MAHTS every year. I think it is a great show. I usually find a couple of good deals down there....saws, blades, hardscaping tools. Not to mention new products and techniques. I like the advanced classes. This year I may take a class on sales or estimating. Possibly the VanderKoi class. A must for any serious hardscaper.

If you ever get the chance never pass it up and well worth any money spent doing it.

Someone mentioned trade-shows being a thing of the past? Why?

I flew 2000km to go to one in early January ...made a few contacts ,we bought a Harley rake, found a contact for diamond blades, listened to a few great speakers and over all had a great time.

I love going to Trade Shows. It keeps me in tune with the newest technologies and techniques. Yeah, You can see that in mags., but I like to see things in person before I buy. Not to mention they are great places to network and exchange ideas with people that are not in your direct market.
