TPIE Booth Award Winners

Each year, outstanding booths are chosen at TPIE. A judging committee walked the floor on the first day of the show and chose simply the best among the show's exhibitors. FNGLA President Ed Bravo (Big Trees Plantation., Newberry) and TPIE Chairman Bisser Georgiev (LiveTrends Design Group LLC, Apopka) will present the TPIE booth awards to the winning firms on the TPIE Create Theater Stage. Special thanks to emcee Chris Beytes (Grower Talks, Chicago) and congratulations to all the 2017 award winners!
