Industry News

| December 6, 2013

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Central Environmental Nursery Trade Show (CENTS) announced that it will host CENTS 2015 in the middle of the week, from Jan. 7- Jan. 9, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio. The 2014 convention will take place as planned Jan. 13-15, 2014 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

“In 2015, exhibitors can be on display at CENTS earlier than usual to take advantage of the pre-season opportunities that have earned our show a reputation as a highvalue business convention,” states Kevin Thompson, Executive Director. “Exhibitors can travel and set up the first part of the week, exhibit Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and then return home for the week-end.“

For more than half a century, CENTS has provided leadership in supporting an estimated 8,000 green industry professionals to secure continuing education, business opportunities and professional networking in a high-value, cost-effective, face-toface forum. The convention is typically held the second week of January; the Board of Directors will determine which week will work best for exhibitors and attendees following the 2015 event.
