Regional Shows Continue to be Exceptionally Valuable

“We continue to partner with the OTF because we not only want to see individuals better themselves, but also because we believe in investing in this industry.” – Keaton Juergens, VGM Club’s Director of Member Development for the Ohio Valley territory.

Keaton is speaking specifically about the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation (OTF), but this sentiment is shared amongst all of our reps at each regional show we attend and support. Below, you can find a list of a few events we will be at in the coming weeks, along with vendor partners as well.

“This opportunity to meet face to face with our members is incredibly valuable. When is there another chance to have this many in one spot so we can catch up, talk shop and learn more about their needs?” Says Carla Boss, VGM Club’s VP, Member Services “Everyone in this industry is working, offseason, busy season, it doesn’t matter. To have an opportunity like this… It’s exceptionally valuable.”

“The Carolina GCSA Conference and Show is always such a great experience for James, myself and the VGM Club team, and we wanted to “give” the attendees something to “go” away with... So we will have a pre-show game to play, along with games and prizes at our booth. We will also be providing water and Gatorade for refreshments. I can’t wait to see everyone at the show!” – Courtney Donohue, Director of Member Services.

“In Ohio alone, we have upwards of 200 members. I do my best to see as many as I can throughout the year, but there is no subsititute for the Ohio Turf Foundation Conference & Show. This year we will be giving away two scholarships to assistant superintendents. This has been something we have done with John Deere for a few years. We will also have fun activities like a basketball hoop for a chance to win prizes at our booth. For those in attendance, I highly encourage you stop by and say hi.”  – Keaton Juergens, Director of Member Development.
