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.
What’s the Big Idea?
Imagine that all of the best, brightest and greenest in the green industry come together in one place at one time. Imagine the best speakers come to talk, the best buyers come to buy, and the best ideas come to light in a really big way. Imagine you prepare for the event, have something new to offer, and really bring your “A” game. And imagine that for the first time in a while you’re really inspired.
That’s the big idea.
It’s time for a new show. For new perspective, motivation, excitement. So this year we’re growing CENTS in a new direction.
Together, We’re #1.
You’ve told us: CENTS is the Midwest’s leading Nursery, Garden Center, & Landscape Convention, drawing a national crowd to our regional venue. ONLA is passionate about what you do, and we pay attention to what you say. This is how we create the CENTS experience.
Our industry knows “green” like no one else – new growth, clean environment and money in the bank. We’ve become the oak tree in our profession towering proudly as the largest Green industry convention in the Midwest. We draw people from across the U.S. to meet, learn and buy each year.
At CENTS you’ll have 21 hours over three days to interact and share hands-on, face-to-face product demos with your target audience.
