GIE+EXPO to be featured on TV special

A special episode of DIY Network’s “I Want That” featuring the Green Industry & Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO) is scheduled to air April 9 at noon Eastern time. This one-hour special was taped directly from the GIE+EXPO 2015 show floor. The DIY Network crew walked the aisles with their cameras in October, talking with exhibitors and taping the newest trends, products and tools in the industry.

“Our exhibitors know GIE+EXPO is the No. 1 place to launch their new products,” said Kris Kiser, president and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI). “That’s what thousands of attendees come to see. Having a national media outlet such as DIY Network cover the show is first-hand evidence that GIE+EXPO is the top showcase for our industry and reinforces the fact that this is the place to be in October.”

“I Want That” takes an up-close look at the hottest home improvement products around. From the latest in lighting to smart appliances and must-have tools and gadgets, each episode of “I Want That” is packed with in-depth information on the coolest products to just hit the market.
