Glee industry update – pre-registration required

The doors open on Glee 2017 in just a few short weeks. Retailers and buyers from across the garden, landscaping, pet, home and gift sectors are invited to register for the show to secure their free ticket ahead of the annual exhibition.

In a change to the normal procedure, badges will not be automatically sent out to visitors unless they have registered for the show. As a result, all visitors and interested parties need to visit and register in order to secure their free entry to the show.

Matthew Mein, Glee Event Director, said: “Many returning retailers may be waiting for their badge to arrive via email in the normal way, however a change to our system means that they will need to re-register for the 2017 show. The process only takes a few moments to complete, and badges will be delivered shortly after.

“Whilst on the website – – why not also view the wealth of wider information that is available, helping you to plan your trip around the show. With so much newness on display – including the exciting Retail Lab at the heart of the show –  it’s worth familiarising yourself with everything before coming on-site to ensure you maximise every moment at the show.”

To register for Glee 2017 simply visit or head straight to to secure your free ticket.

Getting there

Glee takes place at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, and is easily reached by car, rail and air.  If you are arriving by car, follow regional signs to the NEC where visitor car parking is plentiful and free.  All halls are within walking distance, but a free shuttle bus service is also available from car parks to the Halls.  Rail travel is equally convenient with Birmingham International railway station located on the NEC site.  For international visitors Birmingham International Airport (BHX) is linked to the NEC by the free SkyRail, departing every few minutes and taking just 90 seconds.  National Express Coaches run a regular service to and from the NEC covering most UK locations.
