Cultivate Receives Trade Show Honors
AmericanHort’ signature event, Cultivate, is being recognized in the trade show industry by two leading industry organizations – Trade Show Executive (TSE) and Trade Show News Network (TSNN).
Cultivate has been named to the Trade Show Executive (TSE) Gold 100 — the 100 largest trade shows of 2018 as determined by Trade Show Executive magazine. Sherry L. Johnson, AmeericanHort’s vice president of Business and Knowledge Development accepted the award on the organization’s behalf at a ceremony on Sept. 26, 2019 in San Diego, California.
The trade shows ranked on the Gold 100 list feature the largest exhibit areas in terms of square footage sold to exhibiting companies. The shows on the Gold 100 averaged 461,503 net square feet of exhibit space, well over 38,000 visitors, and generated scores of major purchase orders.
“We are honored to receive this recognition and proud to showcase the green industry,” said Johnson. “Landing a spot on the Gold 100 roster means that a trade show is excelling in its role as a venue for high-level commerce.”
In addition to this recognition, Cultivate’19 has been named one of ten finalists for the Best of Show Award by Trade Show News Network.
