Former owner Duane Kelly announced recently that he has sold the Seattle-based Northwest Flower and Garden Show – second-largest consumer hort show in the country, behind only the Philadelphia Flower Show – to Portland-based O’Loughlin Trade Shows, which operates the Portland Home and Garden Show and other trade shows. Kelly had announced earlier in the year that he was retiring from trade shows and would discontinue the Seattle show and its sister show, the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show, unless he could find buyers. He did find buyers, and therefore both shows will continue. Read more at the Seattle Times.
