Jan. 21, 2015, Columbus, OH – Master Nursery Garden Centers will begin hosting its Eastern region gathering (formally known as the Conclave) this year at Cultivate’15 (July 11-14).

Now in its 86th year, nearly 10,000 people attend Cultivate, which is considered to be North America’s largest all-industry horticultural event.

Cultivate has long been a preferred event for local garden retailers, where they get an early look at new plant varieties, retail technologies, and business solutions. This year’s event includes the new Retail District – a tradeshow exclusively for retailers – and a garden retail tour, classroom sessions, hands-on workshops and demonstrations, and idea exchanges.

“We are moving our membership meeting to Cultivate because it’s an all-inclusive event that will provide business-building education and access to the largest variety of plants and products that our members need,” said Gerry Docksteader, vice-president of operations for Master Nursery Garden Centers.

“We are excited about Columbus, which is a city that celebrates independent businesses, and is an easily accessible and affordable destination,” he added.

Cultivate is an industry event organized by and for retailers, and where the members of Master Nursery Garden Centers will feel at home, said Michael V. Geary, president and CEO of AmericanHort.

“This multi-year partnership will provide the opportunity to bring business know-how, the hottest plants, and the newest products to an expanded group of retailers.”
