BEST is Going Virtual at Cultivate’20
The AmericanHort sponsored Cultivate’20 Virtual, the 100% online trade show, and conference for the horticulture industry debuts on July 13th, and BEST Human Capital & Advisory Group will be there!
BEST will be hosting a 3-D virtual exhibit booth where attendees can access timely information, interact with the BEST Team, and be a sounding board for any human capital challenges or strategies your company is considering for our industry’s next cycle.
Todd Downing, a Managing Partner at BEST, remains positive stating, “We’re excited to be exhibiting virtually at Cultivate’20. Of all the years for us to not come together in person as an industry, this would be one of the years we would have all valued the conversations and collaboration that Cultivate provides the most. The AmericanHort Team has done a fantastic job in making this happen, and thanks to their efforts, we can now do it online. Our close industry clients are reporting strong sales and a positive outlook, but with a future that requires increased strategic planning.”
Cultivate’20 Virtual will provide an exciting new venue where attendees can experience products and services in a 3-D environment. “Our participation at Cultivate’20 Virtual enables our Team to engage with customers, answer questions, and have the dialogue our industry depends on as our peers work through challenges in a real-time environment,” added Downing.

Attend Our Seminar at Cultivate’20
According to Chris Cimaglio, a Managing Partner and Exit Planner at BEST, “The events of this year have profoundly affected professionals choosing to retire early. We are experiencing an increase in both succession and exit planning in the horticulture industry.” To address the coming surge of Baby Boomer retirements and business exits, BEST is providing a timely educational session on this topic via the virtual Cultivate’20 Education Programs. The Seminar, Succession Planning When There is No Succession, is on Wednesday July 15th at 10:00 AM EDT and will be on demand (available anytime) afterwards.
Most business owners have no transition plan. It gets even more complicated when there are no family members ready or willing to take over the business. For when this situation arises, we developed a seminar to look at the preparation and planning steps along with value building and transitional strategies for your business. It will also address your emotional readiness and review actions you can start to take today that will make you and your business more transition ready.

Since we will not have the in-person forum this year, let’s connect virtually at Cultivate. We will be available to meet to discuss your executive hiring, succession planning, restructuring, and turnaround needs for your company before, during, and after the Show. With decades of experience in corporate management, sales, marketing, human resources, and business advisory, BEST specializes in executive recruiting and management consulting to clients in the horticulture industry. We would also welcome a conversation with you to listen and share market/trend intel and provide any human capital strategies that may help your business.
We have also developed and shared several human resource tools over the last (4) months in response to COVID-19, including a Post-Pandemic Checklist — A Human Resource Guide to Normalization of Business Operations (PDF) for your review and use. You are welcome to use and share this freely and visit our dedicated Coronavirus Section on our web site, where you will find a wealth of leadership and response resources and information. Be safe and be healthy!
