IT’S SHOW TIME! Hopefully you have already registered for TPIE and have received your badges in the mail. If not, don’t worry. You can still register on-site for the show and most TPIE Short Course programs. In fact, TPIE buyer registration will be open on Wednesday from 10 am – 5 pm, as well as on show days beginning at 8 am. If you are in town, beat the crowd and register on Wednesday. Registration lines are the longest on Thursday morning from 9 am – 11 am.

SOLD OUT – The TPIE Short Course Inteiorscape tour is sold out. An additional bus has made more spots available for the garden center tour. Call 800-375-3642 TODAY if you are interested in joining the garden center tour. Limited seating is available for several of the TPIE Short Course classes. Of course, there is no limit on the number to go through the Trade Show, so plan to be there! Register onsite for the TPIE Short Course and TPIE show badges.

TPIE RECOMMENDED DRESS CODE – Thursday is Tropical Plant Shirt Day! Wear a shirt with tropical plants on it on Thursday and you’ll be entered in a drawing for some great prizes. Relax, be comfortable, have fun.

BCCC SECURITY INFORMATION – TPIE takes place at the Broward County Convention Center which is located on a U.S. Port, Port Everglades. Consequently, in these times of heightened security, when you enter port property (by foot or vehicle) you will be asked to show a government issued photo id (such as a driver’s license or passport). This applies to each individual in a vehicle, not just the driver. This has been in effect for the past few years, so this is not a new requirement. We just wanted to remind you have your id with you when you come to the show. CLICK HERE for more information related to security at the Broward County Convention Center.

GREAT RESTAURANTS IN FT. LAUDERDALE – Not sure where to go to dinner while you are in Ft. Lauderdale? Take advantage of concierge services at the Broward County Convention Center. A concierge desk will be located in the main lobby during show days to offer assistance with restaurant recommendations as well as help you may need regarding additional local services.
