GLEE

Home and garden gadgets supplier, Creative Products is reporting a successful first year at Glee at Spring Fair, with visitors showing a real interest in the company’s refreshed packaging and product range.

  • Why have you chosen to exhibit at Glee’s Spring Fair concession event?

We feel that the timing of the Spring Fair exhibition is the ideal time of year to present our plants to the market, with immediate turn around to optimise consumer spending habits.

The team behind Glee – the UK’s leading annual trade exhibition for the garden retail industry – has recently been expanded with the recruitment of Daniel McAlpin.

  • Bigger content programme with more high-profile speakers
  • Retail Lab set to return in 2018
  • Increased footprint at NEC

Still on a high following Glee 2017, the event’s post-show report has helped shape much of the thinking for the short and long-term future of Glee. The research has highlighted Glee’s ongoing value for the industry it represents. 

Why has Glee added an additional show at Spring Fair?

Launching eight new ranges at this year’s Glee exhibition, leading garden lifestyle brand, Briers, was keen to display its commitment to higher standards for quality and how that has stepped up even further in the last 12 months.

 

  1. How did the industry react to the Retail Lab @ Glee?

The initial reaction was a combination of excitement and interest. The Retail Lab was new to Glee, and as such a visual feast for the senses, many people were stopped in their tracks before coming onto the area to find out more. 

Creative Products is celebrating a successful Glee 2017 having impressed buyers with its latest product offerings and new heritage-inspired packaging.

The team from the Gardenex and PetQuip associations will be promoting and supporting Glee in 2017 with a wide range of activities to help boost business for Glee’s UK exhibitors.
