May 22, 2012, Columbus, OH — The OFA Short Course trade show has been recognized as the 150th largest trade show in the United States by Trade Show News Network.

The annual publication monitors data from nearly 20,000 trade shows, exhibitions, public events and conferences each year and ranks the impact of trade shows by the net square footage of space sold.

The OFA Short Course, held July 14 through 17,  draws garden centre retailers, greenhouse and nursery growers, landscapers, florists and interior plantscapers to Columbus, Ohio. This year, the show will feature 1,500 exhibit spaces and 140 educational sessions.


"We are very proud to make the list again this year. The show gets better each year because OFA is committed to making the Short Course a high value event for both attendees and exhibitors," said Michael V. Geary, OFA's chief executive officer. "We are continually reminded that the OFA Short Course is the event to attend because it has everything you need for your business in one place. There is something for all segments of the industry here."

The OFA Short Course debuted on the Trade Show News Network list six years ago. At the time, it was ranked as the 194th largest show in the United States.
