GYO magazine will be holding a special competition that will see 10 readers win the chance to visit Glee to see tomorrow’s bestsellers.

During the show GYO will host the winners. They will give a guided tour of the halls, and features such as the Retail Lab and New Product Showcase.
They will also award their favourite product with a special ‘GYO Consumers Choice Award’. As well as receiving VIP access to the exhibition.
Matthew added: “Our reasons for the partnership are quite simple. We want to spread the reach of Glee, including creating a buzz at the time of product launches.
“With a captive audience getting excited about the latest product innovations. This will add an extra dynamic to Glee’s offering. It will provide visiting retailers with a different point of view.
“Additionally, the media landscape is changing. To continue to be successful Glee needs to broaden its reach.
“In doing so both Glee, its exhibitors, and visitors can all benefit.
