GIC Debuts New Learning Lounge

PLANET will debut their new Learning Lounge sessions at the upcoming Green Industry Conference held in conjunction with the GIE+EXPO.

The Professional Landcare Network announced their newest educational concept, the Learning Lounge, which will debut at the Green Industry Conference (October 23 - 25th) held in conjunction with the GIE+EXPO.

The Learning Lounge will feature more than a dozen short, 20-minute "TED-talk" style sessions, a "Genius Bar" where people can talk with experts and network with colleagues, and the PLANET Marketplace, featuring PLANET publications for sale.

The concept for the Learning Lounge's compact education sessions is based on research that showed that people want quick, top-line education that is jam-packed into shorter sessions that provide only the most important information on a particular topic. The sessions are being described as TED-style talks, and are included in the GIC conference registration.

"We continue to analyze the market and look for successful trends in education," said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, CMP, PLANET CEO. "We want to deliver education that is targeted for company managers and owners which will help give them the tools and the edge they need to grow and improve their businesses."
