Record Number of Attendees Celebrate the Industry at Cultivate'14
Cultivate'14, the largest all-industry horticulture exposition and convention in North America, concluded Tuesday, July 15 with nearly 10,000 attendees. This is the event's best attendance in more than a decade. The event is not-for-profit and proceeds are used to further industry programs.
“The educational sessions help me determine what information is critical to my customer base. The more attendees at a session, the more important it is for me to learn and understand the content.”
Ball Horticultural Company
“Having exposure to new products and marketing programs in July allows us time to add them in our production plan the following spring. This can reduce the time to bring new plants and program to market by a year.”
“Columbus has first-class restaurants, accommodations, and area attractions that are family friendly yet are affordable! THE place to visit in Columbus – Jeni’s Ice Cream, of course. I recommend the Poached Pear Riesling sorbet!”
“The knowledge base and networking opportunities are incredible and reach around the globe. I leave educated with fresh ideas and inspired to do more for horticulture. ”
North Carolina State University
“Columbus in July is about as nice as it gets for a show. With plenty of great restaurants and fun hangouts within walking distance, it’s an ideal location. My favorite dinner spot for small or large groups is Elevator Brewery and I try to eat there at least once every year – never had a bad meal at Elevator!”
