Where the industry grows
CENTS is the marketplace to increase your buying and selling power, attend educational seminars, and discover up-and-coming industry developments. Be a visible component of the trade show by attending with your business and soaking up fresh ideas, or attend solo and scope out trends. As the third largest trade show of its kind, and the largest in the Midwest, CENTS is a 'must-attend' event for all green industry professionals.
CENTS is a show specifically for people engaged in any aspect of the green industry: grower, garden center, landscape contractor, landscape maintenance, turf grass and arborist. The show is closed to the general public. There is a nominal fee to attend the show, and all visitors must be registered and wear a badge.
