Cultivate'14, the largest all-industry horticulture exposition and convention in North America, featured 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.
Participants came from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and more than 22 other countries representing Africa, Asia, Central America, Europe, Middle East, Oceania, and South America. The event gathered professionals from all aspects of the horticulture industry, including garden and floral retailing, greenhouse and nursery production, plant breeding, landscaping, interior plantscaping, research and education, and manufacturers and providers of products and services. Formerly known as the OFA Short Course, it was the 86th edition of the event that was rebranded this year as "Cultivate."
