Exhibiting space at Glee 2015 is already 68% booked up, putting the exhibition almost two months ahead of where they were this time last year, confirms organiser i2i Events. What’s more several big name brands have confirmed their return to the exhibition, with many more also set to make their debut appearance in 2015; together adding even more reasons for buyers to attend.
Glee’s event manager, Matthew Mein said: “Glee is in really great shape. We are presently 68% booked, which we didn’t reach until March for the 2014 show. This is obviously great news as it demonstrates the value that Glee, as a revised and revitalised show, has for the garden retail market. It’s also great to see so many brands returning to Glee, as they look to optimise the benefits the ‘new-look’ show offers.”
Major brands making their return to Glee in 2015 include suppliers of decorative home and garden accessories, Maingate; Doff Portland, the UK’s largest independent manufacturer of insecticides, weedkillers and garden care products; and Fiskars, a leading global garden tool brand.
Matt Jones, Managing Director of Doff Portland said: “Doff has, and still is, going through an exciting period of growth and development in all areas. Therefore Glee is the perfect platform to showcase our new products and communicate our forward progression to the market. At Glee 2015 people can expect to see from us an increased depth of product ranges on offer, and also get a taste of the various innovations that will be lifting the profile of Doff Portland. Retailers will be able to see that we are serious about becoming a leading supplier to the industry.”
Additionally, Glee will be home to a number of companies that have never been seen before at Glee. Nisson Garden Buildings, and French footwear and country clothing experts, Aigle are just two names have already confirmed their presence at the 2015 show, with many more expected to join the mix over the coming months.
Other key names confirmed for Glee 2015 include Gardman, Scotts, Grange Fencing, Fiskars, Artevasi, Treadstone Products, Javado, Plant Magic Plus, Aspire Outdoors, Barenbrug, and The Walsall Wheelbarrow Company. Town & Country also returns to the show, with its biggest Glee stand ever.
Matthew added: “I am really excited about the coming months. Not only will the team and I be busy confirming even more re-bookings, but we’ll also be dedicating a large amount of our time to attracting lapsed and new companies to the show. Our aim is to ensure Glee continues to deliver a fresh and vibrant showcase of the best the garden retail industry has to offer.”
