NALP unveils education lineup for ELEVATE conference and expo

The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) announced the education tracks and sessions for ELEVATE, its new national conference and expo for landscape and lawn care professionals, Sept 18-21, 2022, in Orlando, Fla.

The education lineup (including more than 40 sessions and five tracks) provides valuable lessons from some of the industry’s top experts and CEOs to help remove the guesswork from running successful landscape maintenance, design-build, lawn care, or irrigation businesses.

Education tracks include team building (recruiting, retaining, and developing employees), customer service and the customer experience, business and finance, operations, and sustainability.

“ELEVATE brings together the best minds in the industry to share insights and learn and grow together,” said NALP CEO Britt Wood. “The education is designed to help landscape and lawn care professionals elevate every facet of their business.”

General sessions feature Alex Banayan, the youngest bestselling business author in America, who will share his ThirdDoor framework for success; and entrepreneur and sports and broadcasting legend Joe Theismann.

The conference also includes an additional 20 education sessions at the expo, peer-learning roundtables, and extensive networking events.

The education sessions are approved for Landscape Industry Certified CEU’s at 1 per hour of instruction attended.


ELEVATE’s lead partners include John Deere (Platinum Partner), Caterpillar (Gold Partner), and Bayer (Silver Partner). For more information, visit
