Do you have a blossoming gardening or horticulture related blog, vlog or Instagram account? You could grow it even further with this special opportunity from our clients Ascential, as this year the team is extending an invite to all gardening bloggers and vloggers to join us at the show as out special VIP guests.
For those of you that might not have heard of Glee, firstly – no, we’re not referring to the US high school musical TV programme… Rather the (longer running) UK garden retail trade show! It comes top of the garden retail calendar and is the number one place to see brand new gardening products before anyone else.
What’s the catch?
There is no catch! This year we – as Glee’s dedicated PR team – are hoping to gather a strong team of bloggers and vloggers to join us at the show, to show us what products you are most excited to see launch!
You just need to turn up, enjoy all the perks of being a VIP and then hit the show floor to see all the latest products from over 600 garden suppliers. From the big-name brands that you’ll know, to a host of brand new innovators, there will be thousands of products on offer, many of which will be the bestsellers of 2018. All we ask is that you share with us (in person or via social media platforms) those products, ideas, concepts, systems that you loved.
We’re even giving some of you the chance to get even more involved than normal – how does a Twitter takeover sound? Or assisting with the daily video reviews? Writing a recap with the Glee Daily News? There are tonnes of opportunities to get involved – and a load more we’ve not thought about so let us know any ideas you might have regarding ways to get involved.
All you have to do is show up on the 11th, 12th or 13th September at the NEC, sign in at the entrance to Halls 17-20 and you’ll have free reign to do the following:
- Demo the latest products
- Arrange special trials and samples
- Meet innovators, experts and top industry figures
- Interview speakers – first hand insights on garden product trends
- Explore link up opportunities with your favourite brands
What would I get for attending?
Apart from the endless opportunities for networking, and unrivalled inside knowledge, and access to top experts and brands, you’ll be treated to:
- The chance to see hundreds and thousands of new products before they hit stores next spring – see tomorrow’s bestsellers, today
- Free refreshments
- Tonnes of freebies (seriously, you might want to bring a trolley!)
- Exclusive access to the VIP press area – to work, rest and recharge
- Four seasons worth of content – hundreds of press packs only available at the show
If you’re interested in coming, that’s all we need to know. Or perhaps you’re brimming with ideas about how you’d like to get involved. Either way, just email Kimberley@hornbywhitefootpr.co.uk or get in touch on twitter @HornbyWhitefootPR and we’ll get you sorted in regards to registration. We’re hoping you don’t miss out on this opportunity – it could be the only chance you get to do this! If you want to grow your presence in the media, add some more subscribers to your blog, followers on Instagram or views on YouTube – then Glee 2017 is the place to be.
