Following last year's virtual event, GLEE returns to the NEC Birmingham on 14 -16 September 2021, and there's no doubt that the horticultural industry's major annual event will be welcomed back by both retailers and manufacturers.

GLEE brings all aspects of the garden and outdoor living sector together in one massive exhibition space and provides them with a wonderful opportunity to network with colleagues and meet with customers while seeking out new suppliers and exhibiting fresh products for the 2022 season.

Although the circumstances are unfortunate, it's a fact that many more people showed greater interest in gardening last year than ever before, and GardenSite along with the rest of the industry want to build on this momentum by encouraging everyone to continue gardening.

GLEE gives the gardening community every chance to re-connect with all aspects of the industry with eight distinct show sectors full of inspiration. There's certainly an imposing roster of exhibitors, and it's a marvellous platform for brands to showcase their new products and innovations,

Many of these products will be making their appearance on GardenSite over the next year and ranges from many of the market leading brands that will be featured at GLEE such as Beefeater and Napoleon barbecues, Premier lighting, Henri Studio and Home & Garden ornaments are already available.

Due to the pandemic, many product launches have been delayed with businesses concentrating on keeping to government guidelines but now with GLEE as the first in-person garden supplies exhibition in eighteen months, all this is about to change.

Robert Hall, Senior Partner at GardenSite summed up the anticipation we are all feeling:

GLEE has always been a cornerstone of our buying activity, our customers expect innovative new products each year and the huge selection offered under one roof is the perfect way of sources them.
As we were voted Online Retailer Of The Year in 2015 and 2016 at GLEE, you can be sure the GardenSite team will be out in force, seeking out the best new products from both UK and international suppliers to offer our customers and the ever-increasing gardening public.

Hopefully with lockdowns over and restrictions relaxed, you can be sure that GardenSite will be at the forefront of a brighter, greener, future, and this will all start at GLEE 2021, so watch this space.
