• Expand the offering of relevant professional development and networking opportunities for members and other professionals.
CULTIVATE'14 HOSTED BY AMERICANHORT
Cultivate’14 is organized by AmericanHort, the national horticulture industry association that includes numerous interior plantscape firms and professionals as members and has offered interior plantscape programming for several decades.
Formerly known as the OFA Short Course, Cultivate’14 includes educational programs, tours, exhibits, workshops, and networking events for plantscape professionals, which will now be complemented with PIA’s programs. These include the annual PIA International Plantscape Awards and the Plantscape Hall of Fame.
More than 9,000 people are expected to attend Cultivate’14.
With this partnership, PIA’s members can register for the event at AmericanHort member rates.
All plantscape professionals, regardless of membership in either organization, may purchase the Cultivate’14 Interior Plantscape registration package, which includes the related educational programs, tours, networking events, and the exposition.
The awards banquet on Monday evening requires a separate ticket. Registration and housing information is available at www.AmericanHort.org/Cultivate.
