Thank you, GIE+Expo, for a great show. We had a blast handing out #TeamRealGreen shirts and managed to give away a few gift cards to fans wearing them throughout the event.
We’d also like to congratulate the winners of three customized Genuine Louisville Slugger bats we raffled during the event. Drew Ziegelmeyer at Paramount Lawn & Landscape, Christ Esh at Honey Brook Hardware and Kevin Wilson at Greenscape Turf & Design will each receive custom engraved wooden bats directly from the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory in Louisville, Kentucky!
Of course, the best part of GIE was catching up with our customers and welcoming several new ones. In case you weren’t there, here are some event photos and our President & CEO’s thoughts about his very first major Green Industry event:
Bill Nunan, President & CEO, Real Green Systems:
“This was my first GIE+Expo experience. Was it ever impressive, busy and educational! I was amazed at the size of the event and the breadth of engagement. The diversity of the equipment and suppliers at the show was an immersive education in the lawn care industry, which I’m relatively new to.
It was especially gratifying to see the activity at the Real Green booth, which was buzzing the entire time. Our sales team was demonstrating our software solutions and closing deals during the whole show, and well after the doors closed, we still had people at the booth wanting to see how Real Green Systems technology could help them manage and grow their businesses. It was exhilarating.
What I found most valuable at the show were the conversations with the lawn care and landscaping business owners and operators. It’s difficult having in-depth discussions at these events; however, they were eager to share their business challenges and, in the instances of our customers, keen to share how Real Green has become a valued partner in the growth of their businesses. Because that’s what we really do. We help companies to grow.
When you have software unmatched in the industry, and it’s backed by a team of passionate developers, support technicians, and growth professionals, who are genuinely excited about the product and devoted to helping customers succeed, that’s a secret sauce that is pretty hard to beat.
All in all, it was a great event. I’m already looking forward to next year.”
We have an exciting year ahead of us at Real Green Systems. In addition to introducing new technological innovations and accelerated educational opportunities, this January 5-8, 2020, is the 20th anniversary of Real Green’s users’ conference, Solutions. Some of the exhibitors you saw or perhaps didn’t get a chance to see at GIE will be there. If you’re among our valued customers, you’re offered an exclusive opportunity to engage in an environment more conducive to business-changing conversations.
We have close to 200 learning sessions scheduled over 2.5 days concentrating not just on our software, but on industry trends, business best practices, how to get more from your team, new legislation affecting the industry and more. So, we invite all of our Real Green family of customers to join us in Nashville, Tennessee, this January 5-8, 2020, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.
