Big name garden industry suppliers such as The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, Gardman, Finnforest, Town & Country, and Westland Horticulture have re-booked for Glee 2008.
The 32nd Glee exhibition – held on September 16-18 – has received praise from exhibitors, visitors and industry organisations alike for the quality of this year's show, which attracted more than 1,500 garden, leisure and pet exhibitors.
Show director Dan Thurlow said the feedback about new initiatives such as the buyer-friendly layout, fresh approach to Glee New Products and the introduction of our Going Green trail has been positive.
He said: "Buyers have used Glee not just to meet new suppliers and develop professional relationships but to seal deals on the day. This demonstrates just how effective the show is at putting people and products together, in a convenient and timely way."
Dan Thurlow also confirmed that fresh developments for the 2008 show are already underway.
"Going forward we plan to make continual improvements to Glee's successful format. We have conducted face to face and telephone research with a wide cross-section of exhibitors and visitors, to find out their views," he said.
Part of that, he added, will include making Glee a useful, all-year-round information resource for the industry as well as some soon-to-be-announced development plans.
