Gardenex offers US exhibition grants to garden suppliers

British suppliers of garden and leisure products can exhibit at reduced cost at three North American trade shows in 2014, thanks to funding secured by the Gardenex export federation.

Grants of £2,000 under the UK Trade & Investment’s Tradeshow Access Programme are available for any eligible UK firms wishing to display their products in the Gardenex-organised group at the National Hardware Show (NHS) in Las Vegas in May 2014. 

The federation has also negotiated a 10 per cent discount for its members exhibiting at two Independent Garden Centre Shows in Maryland and Chicago in August.

More than 27,000 visitors are expected at next year’s NHS show from 6-8 May 2014.

The Independent Garden Centre Maryland event is a new addition to the exhibition calendar,  and runs from 5 to 7 August 2014.

The IGC takes place in its traditional home of Navy Pier in Chicago from 19 to 21 August 2014.
