Throughout the three days a programme of thought-provoking seminars open to all, on issues shaping the garden retail sector and driving consumer demand will be offered. To further help visitors, all of the seminars will be available online after the show. As well as being a platform for UK suppliers old and new, this year’s Glee will also include an increased number from Europe.

The partnership is helping to support and promote French brands and at Glee the line-up includes companies selling sheds and garden buildings, illuminated indoor plant units and GPS trackers for pets. Key suppliers from Germany are also joining the line-up along with those from more than 10 other European countries including Austria, Belgium and Italy. From
