Garden Connect Airlines welcomes you on board

Garden Connect Airlines is flying to Birmingham this September (14th – 16th) to attend the forthcoming Glee exhibition. The crew of Garden Connect Airlines welcomes you to join the flight at gate 20G50 and elevate your online marketing.

Elevate your online marketing

“Since the outbreak of Covid-19 online sales of gardening products exploded. In the UK, 27% of the consumers bought plants for the first time during the lockdowns.” explains Garden Connect’s “pilot” Sjors Hemmen. “We’re flying over to the UK to help garden centres to elevate their online marketing to the next level since surveys showed 43% of the consumers will keep buying plants online post-Covid-19”.

Frequent Flyer Dinner

On the first night of Glee, Garden Connect Airlines will host a frequent flyer dinner. “We didn’t have a chance to meet our most frequent flyers in the last 18 months.” tells “co-pilot” Edwin Meijer. “But it’s important to catch up and that’s why we’re hosting a frequent flyer dinner on Tuesday evening. All our frequent flyers will be invited to join us. And no, we’re not going to serve trays of plane food!”

The dinner takes place on Tuesday the 14th at the NEC and will start at 6 pm. A special guest during the Frequent Flyer Dinner will be Linda Petrons of Greenfingers Charity, who will give an update about the plans the charity has in the years ahead.

Latest garden industry trends

Glee visitors who want to elevate their online marketing can visit the Garden Connect stand to obtain a boarding pass for the online executive briefings which are scheduled later in September. These briefings will include a lot of market research and tips on how to elevate online sales.


“Our marketing team did extensive research in the last months and we’re going to present the most important changes affecting the garden industry. Garden centres who want to grow, online and offline, can register at the Garden Connect Airlines stand at Glee”, explains first officer Robert Payne.
