Why should I rent an exhibit?

There are 10,000 attendees at this show. 3,400 of the 10,000 attendees are owners or CEOs, 2,900 are looking for new products. That is over 5,000 people with purchasing power and according to show organizers 3/5 are looking to buy. The horticulture industry does not avail itself to easy sells, so a trade show floor in horticulture, in particular, is essential to your annual sales numbers.
