CPS Celebrates it’s 31st Annual Spring Fling Event
Life offers few inevitables: Death. Taxes. And an AMAZING CPS Spring Fling event every year! Our 31st annual CPS Spring Fling was another huge success as over 1,200 of the very best and brightest industry professionals gathered together to show and learn about the latest in green industry innovations. At the end of the day, excitement for the season was buzzing between contractors and vendors alike. The Spring Fling event got even bigger this year experiencing a 20% growth in attendance from the previous year.
CPS extends our deepest of thanks to all event attendees, educators, vendors, and staff members for pulling off another epic event!
Free Industry Classes, Prizes, Specials, & More
For contractors, this year’s Spring Fling event proved the perfect opportunity to learn directly from the vendors and manufacturers more about the products they use every day as well as some new product lines coming to their local CPS branch. In addition to face-to-face time with vendors, several contractors also took full advantage of the full slate of industry-related classes such as: Hardscaping, Pumps and Motor Controls, Electrical Irrigation Troubleshooting, Marketing, New Irrigation Technology and many more. This year, we were very fortunate to have John DeRosa from Heritage Landscape Supply Group teaching business & sales practices. For contractors looking to capitalize on season-low pricing, CPS Spring Fling proved the perfect platform to get their early season orders in at huge savings.
Furthermore, customers that placed early season orders at Spring Fling were entered into several drawings for chances to win incredible prizes like Yeti coolers, tool sets, barbecue grills, speakers and even a grand prize giveaway of an enclosed trailer with custom graphic wrap.
Vendors at CPS Spring Fling took advantage of the opportunity to speak directly to their consumers. Every year, we receive tremendous feedback that the event’s intimate setting creates the ideal opportunity for vendors to interact with consumers that no other industry trade show offers. Several of our vendors also contributed to the event by teaching some of the free classes offered to attendees.
Every year, CPS Spring Fling is the official start to the season, offering a free event that brings industry vendors together with contractors, designers and specifiers. It’s the perfect opportunity to get a head start, learn about all the new products for the year and pick the brains of those featuring them.
We would like to give a special thanks to our exhibiting vendors, class speakers and attendees for another awesome event. Check back next winter for updated information about 2020 CPS Spring Fling.
