2018 NALP Field Trip: Frank & Marty’s Excellent Adventure

Join Frank Mariani and Marty Grunder as they head to Portland, OR, for the third annual NALP Field Trip.

Together Frank and Marty will take you behind the scenes of Pacific Landscape Management (PLM), one of the most successful commercial maintenance and renovation companies in the country.

There is no better—or faster—way to learn how to move your business forward than taking an in-depth tour of a leading company like PLM and seeing, up close and in person, how they execute and operate. And with Frank, CEO of one of the largest privately held landscaping companies in the country, and Marty, CEO of Grunder Landscaping Co. and a leading green-industry consultant and speaker, at the wheel, you’re in for an amazing ride!

In addition to the tour, this two-day program will feature interactive educational sessions on:

  • Outsmarting your competition, no matter your size
  • Creating a culture that attracts and sustains a winning team
  • Sales strategies that deliver results
  • And winning with efficiency

Enjoy the Rare Opportunity to Walk the Grounds of Nike World Headquarters

If you select the VIP experience, you will also have the rare chance to tour the spectacular campus of Nike World Headquarters, whose grounds PLM maintains, and to enjoy a special cocktail reception and three-course dinner there with Frank, Marty, and Bob.

Reward Your Team with a Training Trip

This event is a wonderful way for you to reward your team with a training trip. The program ends at 5 p.m. on Friday so you can take advantage of the weekend to explore all that Portland and the surrounding area have to offer, from microbreweries and vineyards to spectacular scenery and outdoor adventure.
