I'd like to go, however, since I went last year I don't think I can justify this year !!

I'm not taking my wife. She would be bored and saying I am ready to go. Go with a landscaping buddy of mine.

I'm going, already have the hotel reservations. Last time I went was 2006. About a 15 hour drive as I remember. The outdoor demo area is a Big boy Frickin' Playground !! Charlie Daniels will be playing...

I will be there. Never been to the Lousiville show. I went a couple of times when it was in Charlotte before they combined with the Power Euipment expo.

Oh, you'll like it. Big place plus the outdoor demo area. Big boy playground with lots of Big toys.. Also, a great place to demo, all in one place. Already received my name tag in the mail this week plus the map layout with all the vendors and their locations.

Has this been done before? "In addition to the flash drive provided on-site, presentations will be available online prior to and after the Conference for paid attendees."

I am guessing it is just the power point outline of the classes... I am going but having a hard time deciding which classes to attend.

It appears that there are lots of good ones at the same time. Apparently sustainability is the catch word of the show must be 6 different classes titled "sustainability"

I have my plane and hotel reservations. My wife is looking for someone who has already registered to get their number to enter some refer a friend drawing. If anyone is interested Pm me I need to register by Monday.

anyone know about the gic concorrent classes?

they take place at the gie, but its a planet thing?

does the gie pass let you into the talks? or do you have to
sign up seperately with planet for the gic classes for like 325?

thanks

Here's the link. http://www.gie-expo.com/gieexpo/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=122&Itemid=125

The classes are $50.00 each and I have received a specific class ticket for the one I registered for. So your GIE general show attendance pass won't get you in.

Can you sneak in? Maybe but I can't say.
I would also suggest Pre-registering since the entry fee goes up to $50.00 at the door vs. the $10.00 I paid.

Be at GIE on Thursday when you'll find out the winner of the Extreme Dream Contest! Go to the New Holland booth outside at 4pm.
