The organisers of the Garden Press Event have today confirmed that next year’s exhibition will be replaced by a virtual event on 3 March 2021.
The Garden Press Event, now in its 16th year, is a unique one-day event specifically for the garden industry to showcase the latest products and stories exclusively to the key names and influencers in the garden & home press and media. The event is firmly established as the launch of the gardening season and is a firm favourite for all journalists and media who attend each year.
A spokesperson for the event confirmed: ‘We are certain that there is still a need to bring our exhibitors and visitors together, particularly when there is such renewed interest in gardening, but sadly due to Covid restrictions we are unable to host our physical event in 2021. We are delighted, however, to confirm the launch of our ‘Virtual Garden Press Event’ which will take place on the same day.
“We will be providing an interactive platform for our exhibitors to showcase all that’s new and exciting for 2021, with lots of live presentations and demonstrations plus opportunities to have live ‘video meetings’ in real time’.
The organisers have also confirmed that the annual ‘Best New Product’ award will also take place at the event, and all monies donated from it will be donated to Greenfingers Charity.
Registration for the media to attend is now live on www.gardenpressevent.co.uk. Any companies and organisations who are interested in taking part should contact Jo Gildea at the HTA on 07801 837520 firstname.lastname@example.org
