Irrigation Association Show: Our Favorite Tweets From 2017


Last week, thousands of irrigation enthusiasts gathered in Orlando, Florida for The Irrigation Association Show. This annual convention dives deep into the world of irrigation technology, education, and networking. We were there to learn, teach and to promote the show on twitter. Several others were on hand to use Twitter the best way possible, promoting others and reinforcing positive habits. Here are some of our favorite tweets from the show:

For the 7th year in a row, there was a live tweetup at the show. We had 325 tweets during the one-hour live tweetup. Some of the most influential participants included – Lawn and Landscape Magazine, Incoming IA President Warren Gorowitz, Kris Nightengale, Jain Irrigation and My Backyard Idea reached well over 100,000 people during the hour.

Kris Nightengale, Chair of the Irrigation Association’s Public Affairs Committee, represented the Irrigation Association with excellent informational tweets like this one.


Incoming President Warren Gorowitz also took time to participate with excellent tweets like these.


We were reminded by Michael Derewneko interest in weather based controllers is growing.


We also learned AgTech is improving for agricultural irrigation.


The message of AgTech continued during the General Session.


Andy Belingheri and Michael Derewenko remind us one of the best benefits of the show is the people we see and meet.


Past President Greg Hunter felt good about passing the President’s position to Warren Gorowitz. Greg knows his good work will be a nice launch point for Warren.


It was no surprise the team from the University of Florida - also know as the Urban Conservation Unit – stole the show this year for the most entertaining tweets. Do your self a favor and watch the commercial in the first tweet.

You can see all the great tweets by searching #irrigationshow on twitter. If you missed the fun there is always the meeting next year in Long Beach, California. We hope to see you there!
