Genesis 3 celebrated another successful week of events during the 2013 Pool | Spa | Patio Expo in Las Vegas.

Highlights of the Murfreesboro, Tenn.-based design group’s offerings included well-attended pre-conference classes, general education tracks, and its 14th Annual Genesis 3 Family Reunion and Winemaker Dinner.

By all accounts, the educational offerings were a success.

“The momentum and enthusiasm we are experiencing in Genesis is unparalleled,” said Skip Phillips, co-founder. “To have over 460 attendees in nine morning classes continues to reinforce that we provide an extraordinary value to those who truly want to grow in their professional journey.”

On Nov. 13, a sold-out crowd gathered at Vintner Grill to enjoy fine cuisine with expertly paired wines from Benovia Winery. Winemaker Mike Sullivan also was on site to describe the selections.

During the gathering, co-founder Brian Van Bower expressed his gratitude to the group of members and supporters.

“The passion, dedication, support and work product of the students, members and instructors of Genesis 3 continues to amaze many as we raise the standards and expectations of the entire watershaping world,” he said. “The growing support of our sponsors allows us to continue to expand our reach and add to our educational offerings.”

After a five-year partnership, IPSPE and Genesis 3 officials renewed their partnership in March 2013, extending the current contract from 2014 until 2018. n
