    I'm looking for a schedule of upcoming trade shows in the Indiana/Kentucky/Illinois/Tennessee area.
    Does anyone have this info or a link on where to find it?

    One of the better ones is the Mid-Am on Navy Pier in Chicago.

    It doesn't have the mowers than Louisville does, but is pretty strong for landscapers.

    One of the best shows IMHO is EXPO in Louisville during July. Stay tuned for more information.

    Are you just wanting trade shows to just look at equipment and supplies, or also educational sessions?

    I'm looking for a little of both; education and equipment (software, hardware, toys, wish list).
