Novalis, the national grower consortium responsible for the Plants that Work brand, was recently honored with two awards at this year's OFA trade show in Columbus, OH.

First, Novalis was recognized for its marketing efforts by receiving the Meister Media/ Greenhouse Grower Medal of Excellence for Marketing. The wonderful folks over at Meister provided a great evening and awards reception, including video presentations for all award nominees. The Medal of Excellence Awards are being called "the Oscars of the industry". We certainly enjoyed it.
One the last day of the show, Novalis was awarded the "Best Booth" award by Branch-Smith Publishing. They were excited and honored for the recognition and encouragement from many within the industry. At the show, we heard comments like this from attendees and exhibitors alike:
"It's a tree house."
"You can't call that a 'booth'."
"I went to bed in Ohio and woke up in Charleston."
