LandOpt Opens Annual Contractors’ Education Event to Non-members for First Time

Business & Barbecue set for Nashville, August 1-2

PITTSBURGH, June 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the first time LandOpt, which helps independent landscape contractors nationwide increase profitability, cash flow and revenue, is welcoming a limited number of non-members to participate in a portion of its annual education event.

To be held in Nashville August 1-2, Business & Barbecue brings together some of the industry’s top contractors for hands-on learning and peer to peer networking. It is being held at the award-winning Greathouse Company, one of the nation’s premier landscape contracting companies. A limited number of registrations are available for qualified contractors.

The Greathouse Company is hosting LandOpt's Business & Barbecue educational event for landscape contractors at its Nashville headquarters August 1-2. Attendees will tour the award-winning company's facilities, as well as attend sessions designed to increase profitability.

“Landscape contractors are being presented with so many great opportunities, while at the same time facing a growing list of challenges,” said Jim Westover, president of LandOpt. “As part of our commitment to the industry, we decided to make two days of our event available to non-members.”

The program, designed to help contractors improve their profitability, will include workshops on organizational structure, increasing sales, staffing and building a culture of accountability. The sessions will include a tour of Greathouse’s facilities, as well as social and networking opportunities.

Monday night the talk moves from business to barbecue with dinner at Peg Leg Porker, renowned for its award-winning smoked meats. Attendees will enjoy a private event on the restaurant’s rooftop bar that features city views.

“For contractors who are serious about growing their business, this is a unique opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s most successful companies,” Westover said. “It also is a great way to explore the benefits of LandOpt membership.”
