WHEN: 3 p.m. Thursday, January 17

WHERE: Broward County Convention Center

The National Horticulture Foundation offers a bonus to your TPIE experience with a special session by the green industry’s most respected and engaging economist, Charlie Hall, Ph.D.

Trade war. Midterm elections. Labor shortages. Transportation costs. These are the top-of-mind issues facing the green industry in 2019. But how will they impact the way we do business in 2019? How will they affect the economy? We know that bright skies can’t last forever, so how soon will things start to decline? If you want to know the answers to these questions, then you do not want to miss Charlie’s presentation.

With his engaging and enthusiastic approach, Hall willingly shares his expertise on economic trends in production and marketing. He has the ability to clarify complicated topics on strategic management, market outlook and financial analysis for the Green Industry. A native of North Carolina, Hall received his bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics from the University of Tennessee in 1984 and his master’s degree in ornamental horticulture and landscape design from the University of Tennessee in 1986. He earned his doctorate from Mississippi State University in 1988.

TPIE’s Elevating Expectations Session is included with your TPIE trade show admission badge.
