Businesses across the garden industry are gearing up for the Garden Press Event 2020 by securing prime slots for this key event in the calendar. The event, jointly owned by the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) and Garden Industry Manufacturers Association (GIMA), signals the start of the spring season and provides as unrivalled opportunity to get in front of key gardening media.
Taking place on Wednesday 4 March 2020 at the Business Design Centre in London, the event is perfectly timed to launch the industry into the gardening season. It is the place to showcase new products, themes and campaigns to over 300 of the garden media. The event’s New Product Awards, voted for by the media attending, are also a great launch pad and raise valuable funds for the Greenfingers Charity.
2020 marks the 15th anniversary of the event and we welcome back Agralan, Bulldog Tools, Suttons and Vitax who have exhibited every year. They join 68+ exhibitors signed up so far including: David Austin Roses, Evergreen Garden Care, Farplants, Hopes Grove Nurseries, Hozelock, Husqvarna, Majestic Trees, The Patio Black Spot Company and Westland Horticulture. New exhibitors for 2020 include: Barcham Trees PLC, EKJU, Kabloom, Malvern Garden Buildings, Plaswood, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and The Lawn Company.
Current exhibitors Suttons and Burgon & Ball explain more about the benefits of taking part in the event.

“The Garden Press Event is now a key date in our marketing calendar. We see non-stop visitors during the whole of the day; not just from titles we already know and work with, but always a good number of new faces, too, so it’s a great event for making new contacts. We really wouldn’t miss it.”
Alison Edwards, PR and Communications Manager
