Showtime! By Tim Hodson

Cultivate’19 will kick off this weekend in Columbus, Ohio.

Are you ready?

The conference and trade show will meet July 13-16, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Cultivate’19 provides attendees with four jam-packed days to learn, network and grow with their industry peers. AmericanHort is expecting 10,000+ attendees to be in Columbus this year.

Attendees will have four days to learn, network and grow with their horticulture industry peers.

More than 650 exhibitors will be displaying the latest varieties, products and services over more than 8 acres of the convention center.

The educational programs will feature more than 150 expert speakers who will be presenting 120 professional development sessions.

There also will be a greenhouse production tour; a garden retail tour; a nursery production tour; and a research and innovation tour. These tours provide a unique opportunity to visit some of the top business in the area and learn more about these specific industry segments.

Special workshops on biocontrols, labor, customer service and creating a modern garden center also will be offered this year.

If you haven’t registered yet, you still have time. Just go to www.cultivate19.org.

I also wanted to remind you that will have an opportunity to mix and mingle with many of the members of GPN’s 40 Under 40 that are attending Cultivate this year.

The Mix ‘n Mingle session will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, July 15 in the AmericanHort Member booth in aisle 700 of the Convention Center.

And GPN and Lawn & Garden Retailer will be in booth 2325 on the trade show floor. So if you have a chance, be sure to stop by and say “Hi!”

I hope I see you in C-bus.
