GCSAA Conference Trade Show

The GCSAA Conference Trade Show is an annual event that brings together golf course superintendents, industry professionals, and suppliers to share the latest knowledge, technologies, and best practices in the golf course management industry.

The conference offers a wide range of educational sessions, including keynote speeches, panel discussions, and technical presentations. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and developments in the field of golf course management, as well as best practices for operating and maintaining golf courses.

In addition to the educational component, the GCSAA Conference Trade Show featured a comprehensive trade show, showcasing the latest products and services from leading companies in the golf course management industry.

Link2Pump offers a simple solution that automates the entire fueling and tracking process. This way, you will always know where every drop of fuel is going, keep your inventory under control and do much more to drive fuel efficiency and performance to your golf fleet vehicles.

Todd C. Hawkins, our sales coordinator, believes that attending the GCSAA Conference is a great opportunity to open new markets. “We want to meet them and help those professionals manage their fuel that they have on the course – for their equipment that takes care of the course. None of them have a fuel management system and very few have even thought of it”, explain Hawkins.

He also points out that approaching this market can be good for Link2Pump to sell into this industry and also help the golf courses themselves because they don’t track fuel and have never even thought of the fuel tax rebates they should be getting at each course. “Why? Literally, every golf course in the nation has fuel onsite. No other industry that we’ve talked to has that high of a penetration of on-site fuel, complements.

CES, or the Consumer Electronics Show, is a massive, annual event where some of the most important technology makers and innovators show off their latest and greatest releases. The show began all the way back in 1967 in New York City, and was a bi-annual event until the late 1990s. Recently, the formerly transient show has settled into Las Vegas as its regular home, typically taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In 2023, CES was once again at just about full, in-person capacity, housing major reveals from companies like Samsung, Acer, Asus, HTC, Lenovo, and many, many others.

This year, in addition to the many screen launches, another hot topic was electric cars. Even for those who visited the event, would not be wrong if they thought that all cars in the world are now electric. After all, pretty much everything, from the next generation of motorcycles to a soon-to-be unveiled U.S. Postal Service delivery van, is now battery-powered.

With the Biden administration’s recent announcement of an expected March increase from the present $7,500 incentive for consumers who purchase an electric vehicle, there will soon be an additional financial benefit for buyers. To that end, there is no shortage of options.

About each brand’s releases

At CES, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, Stellantis (parent company of Chrysler, Peugeot, Vauxhall, and Fiat) and Volvo all unveiled their versions of EVs that are either presently in the market or slated for delivery later this year.

Finland-based motorcycle manufacturer Verge introduced its 201 HP all-electric super bike, most-powerful two-wheeled vehicle ever produced, while Oshkosh Defense is producing 60,000 new zero emission delivery vehicles for the U.S. Postal Service — 75% of which will be fully electric — slated for 2026.

Dodge most definitely turned heads with the introduction of its new Ram 1500 Revolution fully electric pickup truck, with two 14.2-inch touchscreens, one of which is removable for use outside the vehicle, and its innovative Shadow Mode, which allows the truck to follow its owner at low speeds, perfect for delivering items to multiple nearby locations.

But the unquestioned star of the show was the partnership between Sony and Honda, which are working together to manufacture and sell their unique, entertainment-infused line of electric vehicles under the brand name Afeela.

With 45 integrated cameras and sensors, and safety a top priority, the new line will ultimately feature Level 3 automated driving capabilities under limited conditions, meaning the car can drive autonomously in heavy traffic, but the human driver must take over when the system requests it.

The innovation in one area often launches a movement, and nowhere was that more apparent than in the dozens of power stations and charging options present in the exhibition hall.

Technology industry professionals attend the show to learn about what is new, what is hot, and what is coming. The world’s largest gathering for innovation and technology also allowed us to see and imagine the future.

If you’re in the lawn care, landscaping, hardscaping, tree service, or related industry, and haven’t been to the GIE+Expo in Kentucky, then you’ve been missing out. 

The International Landscape, Outdoor Living and Equipment Exposition is the largest trade show for outdoor power equipment, lawn, and garden equipment. For nearly 40 years, EXPO has helped the industry connect in challenging times. Link2Pump will be at GIE+EXPO this year. 

GIE stands for Green Industry Equipment and is the largest trade show for your industry in the United States. You’ll have access to 1000+ exhibits (including us!) and outdoor space to demo equipment.

Some people come to catch up with old friends and vendors, and others to network with new connections and top decision-makers. Some invest in the workshops and

training opportunities, and many more flood the show floor and outdoor demo space to test new power equipment and products before they hit the market.



It’s where attendees experience and can purchase the most innovative products and services, and where exhibitors have direct access to thousands of decision-makers. Industry

members from across the globe gather here to share ideas and learn. Exhibitors range from

manufacturers of outdoor power and light construction equipment to suppliers of hand tools and outdoor living products. Dealers, retailers, and lawn & garden centers attend to explore new products for their inventory, attend workshops, and participate in technician certification opportunities.

Lawn and landscape professionals, grounds managers, and general contractors attend to compare products, plan, and purchase for the busy spring and summer seasons. With technology at the forefront, staying on top of trends is key to their business growth.

Early this year Link2Pump was part of World of Concrete Virtual Industry Forum. Over 300 industry professionals attended our VP of Sales session on how to reduce fleet costs by managing and claiming fuel tax rebates. Concrete producers and contractors can secure significant federal and state tax rebates for the fuel not used for on-highway activities, on average about 60 cents per gallon.
