The Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association hosted its annual tradeshow, the Midwest Green Industry Xperience (MGIX) on  January 16–18, 2017 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.

The conference, formally known as CENTS, welcomes 5,000 attendees for three days of education, exhibits and special events.

The 2017 exhibit hall featured nearly 300 exhibitors in a redesigned floorplan, a new product showcase, and a garden lounge—the hub for MGIX’s Opening Night Party on Monday.

Participants chose from more than 90 education sessions encompassing a wide variety of topics. Educators from The Ohio State University led 24 sessions focused on horticulture, pest and disease management, and industry research. In the exhibit hall, education sessions on arboriculture and climbing techniques were offered in Climbers’ Corner, while hands-on training with equipment and tools took place in the ONLA Garage.

Pre-conference sessions included Perennial Plant Association’s Annual P.L.A.N.T. Seminar, Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement Specialist Course by ICPI, and Landscape Business BootCamp by Greenmark Consulting.

On Tuesday, attendees headed over to Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens’ Wells Barn for a night of live bluegrass music.
