It’s a shame if you did not make it to Florida last year. For those in attendance there was so much to do! The event started off Wednesday with two-dozen contractions converging for the 7th Annual Ponditat™ for Humanity pond build (see article in next issue). On Friday there was a field trip to Blackwater Creek Koi Farm and we ended the day with a magnificent experience at a Manatee Refuge.
Then there were a dozen plus seminars to fill your head with ideas and to help you with your business – great speakers sharing their vast knowledge on topics you can use everyday. Since there were two seminars going at any one time, it was often very difficult to decide which one to attend. A big “Thank you” goes to every speaker.
A very delicious banquet happened on Sunday night. Awards were given like the IPPCA 5-Star Contractor Award, sponsored by EasyPro Pond Products. This year’s award was presented to Jeff Krenner – congratulations!
Other awards were Top Gun and IPPCA’s first Diamond Test graduates. Then POND Trade Magazine presented the winners of Product of the Year. Eric Triplett’s new skimmer was one and he was present to give an impromptu overview. Thanks Eric for sharing. (See more on page 26.)
INFO-TANZA was held in conjunction with the IA Show. There were many booths to see new products or maybe products that you just never knew about. It is events like this where you learn so much.
Enjoy the pictures and we hope you will become inspired to attend this year!
