Glee 2016 – Still the best trade show for Garden Retail

Preparations are in full swing here at Copely for Glee 2016 at NEC Birmingham, the exhibition is regarded as the UK’s leading garden retail event showcasing innovative and inspirational products.

The exhibition will launch on 12th September and run until the 14th. This year you’ll be able to find Copely Developments Ltd on a RHS Everflow dedicated stand 19C18.

This is the perfect chance to see our RHS Everflow® ‘The Unstoppable Water Hose’ in action. The premium quality garden hose features our patented Evercore® technology, this allows water to continuously flow, even if the hose becomes kinked, crushed or tangled!

As a manufacturer and supplier we are always keen to talk to potential distributors, find out more about the RHS Everflow® garden hose pipe.

Glee 2016 is set to be packed with lots of features not to be missed. There will be seminars from prominent industry speakers in the ‘Retail Inspiration Theatre’. This year the focus will be on ‘What the Garden Centre of 2020 will look like’, the other key focus area will include presentations on attracting the younger generation of shoppers to the ‘Garden Centre’.

David Denny from the HTA will be doing a session on ‘The Different Gardeners in the UK’, he will be looking at how gardening demographics will change in the future and assess the opportunities this will create. This seminar is a must for garden centres, landscapers and designers.

The GIMA Business Lounge is also well worth visiting, it will be a great space to arrange meetings. This area will also be used for the “Buyer Connect” speed networking sessions.

If you’re planning on vising the show come and see us on stand 19C18. The Glee Birmingham website has lots of useful information about planning your visit and registering for free tickets.
