Event Description

Following  the Cultivate '16 Press Luncheon (details here), there will be a GWA Connect Meeting at 1:30PM in the Franklin B room of the Hyatt Regency, 350 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215. GWA leadership will lead the group with a brief meeting and introductions followed by networking and member updates. Registration is FREE and non-members and visitors are welcome to attend! 

GWA Members are qualified for Complimentary Registration (and much more) at Cultivate’16!

The GWA Association Outreach Task Force has again planned for GWA to have a major presence at the horticulture industry’s largest trade show in North America, Cultivate’16 (#Cultivate16). It is held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Following the success of the 2014 and 2015 events, the AOTF has again arranged for GWA members to gain special access to the trade show, education sessions and other valuable networking events such as the AmericanHort press luncheon. Let’s see if we can set some records for GWA presence this year!

AmericanHort, the association that organizes the Cultivate show, has generously granted GWA members a special complimentary pass worth $350 that includes all the educational sessions and the trade show. The educational sessions begin on Saturday, July 9. The trade show runs Sunday through Tuesday, July 10-12. For more detailed information about Cultivate please visit:

General Registration: GWA members can register at and use code PRESS10016. This is the only way to register and receive your special complimentary GWA member pass for the trade show and educational sessions.

Hotel: Hotel rooms can be reserved at the same time that you register. Once you complete your registration, you will be directed to hotel options. Book early as rooms go fast.

Press Luncheon: GWA members are also invited to a special press luncheon on Monday, July 11 from 12:00-1:30PM in the Franklin A room at the Hyatt Regency, hosted by AmericanHort. You MUST register separately for this event in order to attend. Click here to register. Sorry, because of construction at the Convention Center, room space is sparse so we must have all register ahead of time.

Expo Booth: GWA will again have a booth on the trade show floor, #1653, and anyone willing to volunteer to work the booth for an hour or two should email Ashley Sullivan.  Working the booth is a great way to meet growers, garden centers and others who could use your skills. 

The GWA AOTF Committee and AmericanHort are proud to provide you with one of the best educational and networking opportunities in the country with a value of over $400.00 (including the educational sessions, press luncheon and trade show).
