Garden Centres Association and Westland announce 25 free conference places

The GCA and Westland Horticulture have announced a sponsorship scheme for the GCA annual conference is on 24-26 January at Crown Plaza Hotel near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

Westland MD Edward Conroy and GCA chairman Dennis Espley are keen to bring forward the future management of the industry and are offering 25 free places at the conference.
They believe this will expose garden centre staff to information and thinking they wouldn't normally see, and give them a wider view of the industry.
The sponsorship will cover the conference from 9am on Monday to 5pm Tuesday, including all accommodation and meal costs.
The scheme is directed at staff below branch manager level who may progress in the future.
Contact the GCA office for an application form 01993 871456 or email
