    It is probably the biggest and best expo in the country. They have both indoor and outdoor exhibits and you can run a lot of the equipment in the outdoor secton.

    The other option for you is much smaller and not until ealry March. That would be the MGIA show in Novi MI hosted by the Michigan Landscape Association. Here is a link to info about that. www.landscape.org It is a small show but very nice and well attended

    i went today, they had the outdoor section closed i guess because of too much rain from the day prior or something.. wasnt raining today though. Place is huge though, tons and tons of vendors... If anyone will be going to this Saturday 10/27/07 please let me know. I filled out a drawing for the Ferris zero turn mower giveaway thats worth 8k+ , id shoot myself in the foot literally if my name or my g/f was called and i wasnt "present" at 1pm on Saturday lol. someone can say they're me or whatever lol.

    I got here late Thursday, will be there all day Friday or at least as long as I can stand it, and unless I see everything Friday I should be here Saturday.

    Didn't have much time Thursday, did a quick walkthrough of the inside. One thing that was distrubing is that I didn't see a booth for Better Outdoor (Quick 36). That is probably the #1 thing I wanted to see and no booth.
    I hope they have something set up outside tommorrow, I thought for sure I saw the Better Outdoor Truck parked in the lot with a mower in the bed.

    From what little I have seen so far, it was worth the overnight trip and should have a full day tommorrow. Hopefully I won't get killed at the casino tonight, haha!

    yeah i dont remember seeing them, but then again its not a familiar brand to me so i may have missed them. Most all vendors with equipment inside have demo areas outside i think, im not sure if some ONLY have test area outside and nothing inside so i guess its a possibility they may setup outside for ya tomorrow.

    Well I saw their truck again but not a Quick mower running at the outside demo area. Bummer.

    I took lots of picks, will try to upload them in the picks area, never done it here before, I hope they came out okay.

    It was pretty well attended they say there was over 20,000 people--some neat things, cool booths--rain was kind of a bummer for the outdoor demonstrations.
