Glee is now just over a month away, and with the final touches happening to our bumper August/September issue, we’ve now got time to plan our time at the show.
GCR at Glee
We’re working with some friends of ours to have a selection of products on display, and to create a nice atmosphere for those that visit our stand.
We’ll also have a couple of different editions of the magazine in bulk, so you can pick up our August/September issue and our Gift Supplement whilst you’re with us.
Regarding our plans at the show, we always find shows in general go best when we’re out talking to the industry, whether that be in the café catching up with some of the garden centre buyers, or on the stands talking to the manufacturers and suppliers of the products and services.
If you would like to arrange a meeting with either myself or our advertising sales manager Tina, then please do get in contact, we’re at the show all three days and have plenty of time for a chat.
What’s going on?
September is a really exciting time for the garden retail industry. Many people may think that after the hectic rush of the summer months, the market gears down until the mad December Christmas period.
However, it’s a fantastic time for product scouting, buying and creating next year’s merchandising plans. Glee is central to this: you can see the latest products, buy the stock, and hear tips and tricks from experts speaking in the seminars.
Add the networking opportunities, and the chance to bounce ideas off your peers, it’s a no-brainer to attend the show.
We’re on stand 19J61, and Tina and I will be walking around the exhibition hall, so if you do see us, we’d love to hear from you. In the meantime, I’d be interested to hear what your plans are for the show.
