Commercial Clients Virtual Conference

Lawn & Landscape Commercial Clients Virtual Conference

Lawn & Landscape will host a virtual conference on adding and retaining commercial clients. The recurring revenue of commercial work is important to growing a landscaper’s bottom line. But many contractors think they can’t handle the work and headaches that come with larger maintenance jobs or compete with larger companies for those jobs.

This virtual conference will help debunk some of those myths. Attendees will receive advice on how to effectively win commercial contracts, and what it takes to retain and grow relationships with commercial property managers.

When & Where

The event takes place on Monday, May 21, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. EDT. The event is a virtual event so you can view from anywhere.
