Out and about: our trade shows in 2018

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.


Top Drawer, 14-16 January 2018, London

We’ve already started the New Year in great style, at Top Drawer at London’s Olympia, 14-16 January 2018.

A super-stylish trade show for the complementary worlds of Home, Gift, Fashion and Craft, Top Drawer is a must-visit for retailers keen to explore the latest ideas from leading lifestyle brands. And we were delighted to be there, with our top picks from our collections of gorgeous gardening giftware.

Spring Fair, 4-8 February 2018, Birmingham

In February we’ll head to Birmingham, for Spring Fair at the NEC, 4-8 February 2018. 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 2018 award winners will be announced at the show, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the judges love our Buzz and Dotty Kneelo® kneelers as much as we do – they’re a finalist in the Hot Novelty category. 


GLEE, 10-12 September 2018, 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 2018 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!


A friendly welcome from Burgon & Ball at GLEE
