|2015 Tradeshow Hours Survey|
Plans for the 2015 OTF Conference & Show and OSU Green Industry Short Course are nearly finalized. This year the conference & show will take place December 8-10th at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. As we prepare the conference & show schedule, we would like to gather your feedback on the tradeshow hours.
Creating a conference & show schedule is always a delicate balance of providing many strong education sessions and having dedicated tradeshow floor time. We received great feedback from our exhibitors regarding the 2014 conference & show. The comments we received included shortening the number of days the tradeshow is open and getting more attendee traffic into the exhibit hall.
Taking your suggestions into consideration, we are planning for this year's tradeshow floor to be open on Tuesday 12/8 and Wednesday 12/9. Education sessions will occur on Tuesday 12/8, Wednesday 12/9 and Thursday 12/10. We will also continue with last year's success and have a reception in the exhibit hall on Tuesday evening as well as a social event on Wednesday evening. Even though the tradeshow will be over Wednesday afternoon, all exhibitors are encouraged to stick around Columbus and attend the social event that night. It will be another opportunity to meet with customers and potential customers in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
Two scheduling options have been proposed for 12/8 & 12/9. Below are details of these options. Please help us finalize the schedule by selecting your preferred option for each day. Please note, the proposed schedules below are not yet set in stone. Times may change based upon feedback you provide in the last section of this survey.
Thanks for your assistance. Additional information about the conference & show as well as booth reservations will be available very soon!
