ONLA Revamps Annual CENTS Tradeshow
The Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association announces a new name for its signature tradeshow held annually in January in Columbus, OH. MGIX—the Midwest Green Industry Xperience—takes place January 16–18, 2017.
The roll out of the MGIX brand replaces the tradeshow’s former name of CENTS, the Central Environmental Nursery Trade Show, with an aim to be more inclusive of the diverse audience the tradeshow attracts.
MGIX includes more than 700 exhibitors and vendors, a robust schedule of education sessions and workshops, featured speakers, specialized training, and professional development opportunities. Networking events and the announcement of the 44th annual Landscape Awards also take place during the three-day event.
The 2017 tradeshow features floorplan and schedule changes to provide a well-rounded experience for attendees, while increasing exposure for exhibitors.
At MGIX, investing in a booth provides REAL value
MGIX attracts more than 6,000 attendees for three full days of industry-leading education, a dynamic and innovative tradeshow, and networking opportunities with industry leaders.
