    I unstuck this thread from the top since it is now over.
    Sounds like it was scheduled to be a very informative show.

    There were 20 sessions covering everything from cleaning out the crowns of huge trees to DOT inspections to weed id in ornamental beds and painting logos on turf. The weather was cool and the attendance was great. The trade show vendors were pleased with the interest generated. All-in-all, a very good day.
