Default Industry Trade Shows

i was curious if anybody down here in the south ( Florida) knows of any upcoming trade shows that fit our industry.

I was checking out some national associations online today, ( Ex. PLANET - Profesional Landcare Network) and i missed a Nursery and Landscape show in Orlando this weekend (ended today) which is about 30 min. from my house.

What about the state landscape associations? I would think they'd have shows and events in your state.

What is it you are looking for equipment, products, advertising ideas, franchise..etc

IMHO time is better spent promoting what you can do in your area Trade shows offer a show of gear and some new ideas and are worth a look, but in my experience for our business this should be done in the spring

Its mainly just to go and see if there is something i have not seen before.
i have been doing this a long time, and sometimes you just need a good idea, or even a swift kick in the *** to get the juices flowing again, haha.
Really no specific reason, but if i was to take the family to a hotel for the weekend and visit a tradeshow, we are all happy.
