So once again, we teamed up with expo ease and some good people and successfully supplied rental plants to the entire event. The show used the entire north and central halls of the LVCC and the upper level and meeting rooms at the south hall. Aside from that we had many jobs at Caesars Palace and various hotels around town. It took a crew of 2 plus 14 delivery men and women to set this show. Two and a half days to get all delivered. We just supplied the rental plants for the show, cut flowers were done beautifully by expo Ease. Such an event takes many hour of preparation. Luckily we have the large (12,000 square feet) greenhouses, so we had the stock of rental plants to cover any and all last minute orders.
As we try and tell our clients that if you know you want a specific type of plant, please let us know a couple of weeks before the show and we will try our best to supply them. When a customer comes at the last minute and say that they need 25 – 4 foot palm trees we do our best to accommodate them, but I cannot guarantee we will have them. So please get your orders in early so we can make sure we can supply you with what you need.
Most of the customers at this show are mall owners so they all seem to know there rental plants very well. Most malls use low light plants like Dracaenas. Since they are not the ideal rental plant, we do not stock many of them. the biggest problem with the dracaena’s are the plants themselves are very fragile. If you bend the leaves the plant is ruined! So that is the main reason we do not keep too many in stock.
