The event featured new construction and outdoor power equipment from more than 600 companies. The exhibitors had their equipment, products and service on display in four buildings covering more than 300,000 sq. ft. at the Ohio Expo Center, including the Voinovich Center, Celeste Center, Coliseum and Bricker Building.

Along with all of the products and services at the show, educational seminars and demonstrations also were offered throughout the three-day event. Courses covered everything from home design to small engine care and maintenance to cooking demonstrations. A daily drawing also was held, awarding $1,000 dollars to a lucky attendee each day.
