How do I get there and registration?

Early registration is closed but there is a day rate for admission and it is $45. Columbus is a destination that offers many direct flights domestically and transport around the city is convenient with public transport, however, Showcare is the official Cultivate 2019 travel sponsor. Exhibit Experience does not recommend or endorse travel planning, however booking early with an official partner is always recommended to ensure the best rates.

Why Should I Rent and Exhibit, Rather Than Buy, or Use Supplied Materials?

There are 10,000 attendees at this show. 3400 of the 10,000 attendees are owners or ceos, 2900 are looking for new products; that is over 5000 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. If you are looking to expand your brand and look for wider distribution, retailers are all showing at Cultivate and your exhibit needs to really surpass exhibitors who are choosing to show with provided materials.

This is where Exhibit Experience comes in. We offer fully turnkey exhibit rentals to meet any brand guideline and show deadline. From the moment you contact our design team to when your exhibit is delivered your needs are met with professional care and expert advisement to help your exhibit meet and exceed your sales goals. We deliver exhibits domestically and abroad and have delivered hundreds of exhibits this year alone. Some of the best selling components that we would recommend would be dynamic product displays instead of traditional mid range graphics, projected overhead signage, and video reel walls on one portion of your exhibit.
