Ohio Turfgrass Conference & Show draws a diverse group of exhibitors
Boasting 252 exhibitors at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, attendees of the Ohio Turfgrass Conference & Show visited with leading suppliers of turfgrass maintenance products and services at this highly attended event. The trade show floor delivered to attendees one of the most diverse group of exhibitors since its inception and nearly 3,000 attended the 2002 conference.
“Considering the current economy, we were please to see an increase in exhibitors and exhibit space,” says Kevin Thompson, show manger. “We also saw an increase in the total number of companies, clubs, facilities, etc. attending the show and educational sessions. A lot of business was written on the show floor. All the exhibitors I spoke with had great shows.”
New this year was the Innovation Station, a new product display area located in a central location where conference participants could see a display of exhibitor products and services released in 2002 or scheduled for a 2003 release.
The 2003 Ohio Turfgrass Conference & Show will be held Dec. 8-11 in Columbus, Ohio.
