The Mid-Atlantic Hardscaping Trade Show (MAHTS), the original and longest-running educational forum and trade show in North America for professionals in the hardscaping industry, will be held in two locations in 2013. Presented by EP Henry, a leading manufacturer of unit concrete products, MAHTS brings together construction and business skills training, industry certification, and arena and classroom education with the opportunity to network and gain recognition among industry suppliers, distributors and peers.
The first show will take place in Lancaster, Pa., at the Lancaster County Convention Center. Educational seminars will be held Jan. 14-16, 2013, and the trade show will be held Jan. 15-16, 2013. The second show will take place in Atlantic City, N.J. at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Educational seminars will be held Feb. 11-14, 2013, and the trade show will be held Feb. 12-13, 2013.
This year, MAHTS will offer enhanced educational opportunities by providing four times the number of classes, seminars and workshops than in years prior. Additionally, this year’s keynote speaker, professional author and speaker and president of the National Speakers Association, Todd Cohen, will present a highly interactive session focusing on the elements of building a sales culture that will set the stage for a series of three workshops related to this topic.
