Barbican to host Horticultural Trades Association strategic business conference

The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) has announced this year's Garden Futures conference, which will be held on 12-13 October 2010 at the Barbican Centre, London.

The HTA's strategic business event will build on 2009's programme with the full-day conference on 13t October and a business dinner the evening before (12 October) in the Barbican's Garden Room overlooking the Barbican Lakeside and the cityscape of London. Pre-dinner drinks will be in the Conservatory which is a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city which is home to finches, quails, exotic fish and 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees.

The conference itself will again present a full programme of new market information and current trends affecting the garden industry.

HTA president Caroline Owen said: "I encourage all members to put this date in their diary and come along to this year's conference. All businesses need to take stock of where their markets are going and Garden Futures will provide updates on the current state of the industry along with invaluable information about future consumer trends. You can't afford to miss it."

Full programme details will be published later this spring.
