AmericanHort’s Cutivate'19 is to be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center located at 400 N. High Street, from July 13-16th, 2019. The annual event, in its 90th year, is expected to attract more than 10,000 industry professionals from over 40 countries. Attendees will have access to more than 650 exhibitors and 150 tours, workshops, and professional development opportunities during the exciting 4-day experience.
"Our team continues to work hard to deliver an excellent Cultivate’19 experience for all our attendees, exhibitors and speakers,” said Ken Fisher, president and CEO of AmericanHort. “Cultivate is where everyone gathers to learn best practices, see new varieties and product innovation, and foster long-time and new business connections.”
Headlining the keynote address for Cultivate’19 is business leader, speaker and author, Kevin Brown. From a small town in Michigan with blue collar roots, Kevin purchased his first franchise at the tender age of just 17. From there he worked his way up to the executive boardroom and for nearly two decades Kevin was a sales and marketing executive that helped grow a little-known family business into an industry giant with annual revenues reaching two billion dollars. After a 30-year career he decided to retire from corporate America and spread The Hero Effect message to as many people and organizations as possible. He will be bringing forth his passionate message about helping people expand their vision, develop their potential and grow their results.
