Education has a NEW look!

We’ve taken this year’s education at the Irrigation Show and Education Week to a whole new level!

Industry Insights

Yes, you will still hear about the latest cutting-edge research covering a variety of irrigation topics at this year’s show, but the new Industry Insights sessions take it a step further and offer you even more.

These sessions include everything from single presentations to panel discussions. Here’s a taste of the new and different topics featured in Industry Insights:

  • the Irrigation Consumer Bill of Rights
  • mobile apps for water conservation in turfgrass
  • social media and how to use it in your business
  • the H-2A & H-2B guest worker program
  • Wi-Fi technology and how to incorporate it in your business
  • research updates and reports from around the country

The new Industry Insights is where irrigation professionals go to learn about the latest industry trends, research projects, best practices and today’s relevant topics — all from knowledgeable experts in the industry. Some sessions have even been selected to be presented live on the show floor. For more information about Industry Insights sessions and to view the entire schedule, go to the website.
