Glee, the UK's leading garden wholesale buying event, will be returning to the NEC in Birmingham on 14-16 September, and David Coton and the rest of the GardenSite team will be there to source new products to bring you in 2016.
We'll be finding out what is happening in the market place, discovering predicted trends and ordering the best merchandise to offer you at the keenest prices next year.
What's particularly pleasing this year is that GardenSite has been nominated for the 'Best Online Garden Retail Buying Team' in the GLEE 2015 Garden and Leisure Awards.
We're up against some very large players in the garden supplies industry, so even to receive a nomination is marvellous recognition for our buying team.
They work non-stop behind the scenes so that our customers can be offered great products at prices we believe are the best, and it's their skill and tenacity that has been recognised by their peers in the industry.
Exhibitors arrive at the NEC from all parts of the world,so we'll be able to see products from far and wide in the fields of Garden Care, Design & Landscaping, Plants and Garden Leisure.
As the organizers say, innovation and inspirational products lie at the heart of Glee, and there's always a wide selection of merchandise that's not been seen before.
Also included in our schedule will be a series of seminars from respected industry figures, and these will give us even more insight into what our customers want and will be demanding in the new year.
So Glee is definitely a great way to stay ahead the competition and, through our attendance, there is no doubt that we'll be offering you innovative, as well as high quality traditional products, as soon as they appear.
