The Roadshow Cancelled
We are sorry to report that the Roadshowon October 23, 2014 is cancelled. Many in our industry are very busy right now, which is fantastic, but this seems to have had an effect on attendance for the show.
MELA is committed to providing the best possible exposure for our exhibitors, speakers and our two generous event sponsors; Davey Resource Group and Lurvey’s Landscape Supply.
Please stay tuned! The Roadshow Committee and our speakers put together a unique and much needed program that we are exploring moving to one of our upcoming events.
Further details will be released soon.
