We love to get out and about to trade shows. Meeting our customers face-to-face and getting direct, on-the-spot feedback is fastest and most certain way to get that all-important reaction to our products and our customer service.
So this year is no different, we’ll be at the industry’s key trade shows in the spring and autumn, to show all our lovely new products, and to meet up with customers old and new.
Spring Fair, 3-7 February 2019, Birmingham
In February we’ll head to Birmingham, for Spring Fair at the NEC, 3-7 February 2019. It’s the UK’s No.1 trade show for gift and home products, and it’s at the perfect time for retailers wanting to source for the season ahead. There’s plenty going on for the Garden sector, too, and this year the show even features a GLEE area.
What’s more, the Gift of the Year 2019 award winners will be announced at the show. This year we've been shortlisted with no fewer than five of our entries, including our RHS Gifts for Gardeners British Bloom collection, our houseplant tools, and our indoor and hanging pots - you can read more about the awards here.
GLEE, 10-12 September 2019, Birmingham
In September we’re back at the NEC, this time for GLEE, the garden industry’s must-visit event. It’s where all the best-sellers for next year can be found – and some of them will be on show on our stand, if our past performance is anything to go by! It’s where we’ll unveil what we’ll be working on during the year, from ingenious new tools to make gardening easier, to gorgeous gardening gifts, perfect for Christmas and beyond.
So pop these dates in your 2019 diary, and please do come and say ‘Hello’ to us if you’re at any of these shows. We’ll be delighted to see you, and happy to show you our latest inspiration. The coffee’s pretty good, too... and we won’t even mention our heavenly cakes!
