The OFA Short Course, one of the largest educational and trade show events in the United States for the horticulture industry, will remain in Columbus, Ohio through 2016. The annual July event, held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, attracts more than 9,000 industry professionals from around the world to see what’s new, conduct business, learn new skills, and network with peers.
“As a result of OFA’s due diligence and research, it was evident that Columbus remains the best option as the home of the organization’s signature event,” said Danny Takao, OFA president.
The OFA Short Course moved back to Columbus in 1998 after several years in Cincinnati.
