Howdy! Welcome to Houston, Texas…..all Green Industry professionals. The streets were crowded with tourists from all over the state of Texas and surrounding states. Texas Nursery & Landscape Association set the bar high in 2016. Creating a welcoming environment brought everyone together in one central arena, George R Brown convention center. Despite the construction, parking & entertainement was A+ rating. Many people were very excited of what was within the walls of GRB #SaddeUpTNLA 2016 Nursery/Landscape Expo. …so much that I hope you will enjoy a behind the scenes round-up of the many events we participated in this year!
For the first time this year, a small group of our team members were able to attend the Newcomer’s Shindig, this experience allowed them to connect with TNLA Chairman, Billy Long , who has a charming personality and offers everyone an opportunity to connect and really maximize our investment!
I personally enjoyed the 2nd Annual Women’s Wine & Tapas Get Together…since this event is the largest, greatest education & networking event in the state, having these small groups really makes a difference in face-to-face interactions & connecting with other industry professionals. Our Keynote presenter for the ladies was Dan’l Mackey Almy with DMA Solutions, she talked about “securing a lasting legacy” and one key take away was for each of us to really find our “why?” know it and own it. Many tips on how to lead a successful career /life….Woman empowering leadership roles within the industry …I enjoyed ever second of it! Later in the evening we all geared up with our boots & bling to go Wild, wild West with TNLA , at the “Welcome to Houston Party” we were entertained with the live music of Kelly McGuire & free drinks! All thanks to our sponsors Tree Town USA & entertainment by OHP,Inc.
Last but certainly not least, Home Turf Texas Landscape & Design were Proud sponsors of this year’s EXPO 2016 Texas Nursery & Landscape Association Awards Celebration Dinner. This was an evening to celebrate, reflect and appreciate all we have accomplished as a team and be inspired by other leaders in the Green Industry.
God. Inspiration. Creativity. Appreciation and Family are just a few words that surrounded our dinner table that evening….we are Honored and blessed to be amongst industry leaders. Each one sharing a unique story of success. We congratulate all recipients of these prestige Awards: TNLA Arp, Young Leader, Summit and Texas Excellence in Landscaping (TEIL)
