Cultivate'21 is on! After educational sessions on Saturday, the trade show at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, opened its doors yesterday and from the first pictures and reactions we received it is a busy show! "It looks like Covid never happened," exhibitors say, yet due to the travel restrictions there are fewer attendees: Many European and Canadian visitors are MIA. Also what's quite unusual, outside the Convention Center is a lot of rain!
Besides being extremely jealous as we are unable to come ourselves, we're super happy to receive so many pictures for our photo report that we will publish later this week. If you haven't sent in your selfie at the exhibition or your selfie in front of your booth yet, please do so! Like the usual photo reports, our team will mention the name of your company and the products/service you are presenting.
All in all, in this way, we hope to give everyone who cannot attend the show, which will last till July 13, an impression of how it has been and what's on display.
Of course, we will give you a sneak peek below.
The Ball Ingenuity display includes the expanding collection of Jurassic Rex Begonias of four different sizes to serve customers indoors and out; the fragrant Jupiter series of Exacum powered by Ball FloraPlant breeding; and indoor flowering hydrangea from the Hydrangea Breeders Association and Aldershot.
