OFA Short Course Named One of the Largest US Trade Shows
The OFA Short Course trade show has been recognized as the 147th largest trade show among all industries by the annual edition of Trade Show News Network. The show has been on the list for seven straight years, debuting at No. 194. OFA Short Course is the largest horticulture event in North America for garden center retailers, greenhouse and nursery growers, landscapers, florists, and interior plantscapers. Trade Show News Network looks at data from nearly 20,000 trade shows, exhibitions, public events and conferences, and it ranks the impact of trade shows by the net square footage of space sold. “We are thrilled to again be recognized as one of the largest events. Considering that thousands of trade shows are held each year, we are very proud of this recognition. It reminds us that Short Course is the place to attend because it has everything you need for your business in one place,” said Michael V. Geary, CAE, OFA’s CEO. The 2013 OFA Short Course, July 13-16, in Columbus, Ohio, will have more than 1,500 exhibit spaces and 140 educational sessions. For more information on the 2013 event, visit www.ofashortcourse.org.
