TPIE 2016 Booth Award Winners

Each year, outstanding booths are chosen at TPIE. A judging committee walked the floor on the first day of the show and chose simply the best among the show's exhibitors. FNGLA President Billy Butterfield (AmeriScapes Landscape Management, LLC, Orlando) and TPIE Chairman Lloyd Singleton (UF-IFAS Sumter County Extension, Bushnell) presented the TPIE booth awards to the winning firms on the TPIE Create Theater Stage. Special thanks to emcee Chris Beytes (Grower Talks, Chicago) and congratulations to all the award winners!
