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 with more than 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 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. ”

“The Interior vendor showcase is great for us to see products and especially plants grown especially for interiorscapers. Sometimes, we even get to bring them home.”
“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.”
“The education program always includes progressive approaches to improving production results. We have implemented a number of new ideas learned at this event into our perennial production processes. These changes make us more efficient and profitable.”
“The atmosphere in the convention center is stunning and Columbus has great restaurants in a walkable environment. It’s always fun to set up the “who, when, and where” of after-hours at the show. Lots of good lively conversation at the Big Bar on 2 at the Hyatt Regency. Tough to beat Mitchell’s Steakhouse for a great meal and Buca di Beppo as a spot for a big, fun group to gather.”
