Photo Report Cultivate '15

In case you missed it last month; here is the photo report that we made during Cultivate’15, the largest all-industry horticulture exposition and convention in North America. Participants from the United States, Canada, Mexico, and more than 20 other countries representing Africa, Asia, Central America, Europe, Middle East, Oceania, and South America gathered in Columbus, Ohio for Cultivate’15 on July 11-14. The largest all-industry horticulture exposition and convention in North America recently concluded with approximately 10,000 attendees. This year, attendees saw more exhibitors, an expanded collection of business-building programs, and the presentation of several industry initiatives.

Overall, the exhibitors were pleased with the number and quality of visitors. The visitors were also pleased. According to many exhibitors, the growers who visited the show were in a good mood. "In spite of the drought in California and the extreme cold in several parts of North-America, in this region, the growers had a good spring and are therefore looking forward to the next season," many said. Also the current exchange rate, dollar-euro contributed to this positive mood. Due to the decreased euro against the dollar, the European products are becoming cheaper for the US growers.

Michael V. Geary, the AmericanHort President and Chief Executive Officer, said the event continues to grow and serve the diverse businesses that comprise the industry. “Cultivate is not just a ‘grower show’ anymore, and hasn’t been in contemporary times. Over the last decade, we increased the programming and exhibitor mix to provide a substantial experience for local garden retailers, landscapers, and the other business sectors.” In fact, he continued, “It’s not just a trade show. This year more than 120 educational sessions were offered, and they were complemented by hands-on workshops and tours.”

Cultivate’16 will be held in Columbus, Ohio on July 9-12, 2016. Registration and housing is expected to be available in March 2016 but reservations for exhibit space are accepted now. For more information, visit AmericanHort.org/Cultivate.
