Meeting Recap & Highlights
The Synthetic Turf Council’s 10th Anniversary and Annual Membership Meeting in Orlando, Florida attracted 215 individuals, including 195 representatives from 104 member companies and 20 representatives from 16 non-member companies. Attendees of this historic meeting represented companies located throughout the world and of all types in the synthetic turf industry, including manufacturers, suppliers, installers, landscape architects and engineers, testing labs, and maintenance equipment and service companies.
The STC's Whistle-stop Seminar featured expert presentations and Q&A on current industry-related issues on synthetic grass for landscape and recreation, which was attended by parks and recreation officials, municipalities, landscape architects and STC members. An expanded Exhibitor Showcase, interactive work group sessions and a discussion on removal, recovery, reuse and recycling successes completed the successful educational and networking experience. A consumer panel comprised of parks and recreation officials also discussed their experiences with synthetic grass.
There were two dynamic keynote speakers: retired General Brigadier Steve Ritchie, one of the most decorated Air Force Pilots in military history and American Hero and Congressman Lou Frey, Jr., founder of the Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government, University of Central Florida.
The STC also presented its new Board of Directors, who were elected by ballot prior to the meeting. Our Board plays an extremely active role in shaping the strategic direction of the Council, and we appreciated their service and dedication.
