Glee 2012: Introduction - The best in tools and innovation

Glee underwent some significant changes this year. We have taken great strides to ensure that the show is more focused than ever before and is in a position to deliver the right tools, brands, products and innovation to help garden retailers maximise their profit potential in the year ahead.

The biggest change at Glee will be seen within the added value features we have introduced for 2012. We understand that every second spent away from exhibitors and the show floor needs to be justified, so we have made our offering as educational and impactful as possible. Each of the features has been designed to offer something for all buyers - from the Glee Guided Tours that maximise the value from the show halls, to the Trend Tunnel (Hall 5) that is designed to give you an insight into future trends, courtesy of world-leading trend forecaster WGSN.

Do not forget to pay a visit to our newest feature, the Food & Catering Zone (Hall 5) in partnership with Vision Commercial Kitchens, where ideas, demonstrations and expert advice will be flowing to help you make the most of the growing catering and speciality food trend.

Seasoned visitors to Glee will see that big changes have also taken place in our annual new product awards. This year, visitors will see the next big sellers, latest innovations and ideas, plus great products in our new Glee Shop Window display (Hall 4). Chosen by a cross-section of industry experts and retailers, the Shop Window is designed to provide a unique snapshot of the best products and ideas from around the show.

Most importantly, you will want to visit the hundreds of exhibitors that pack the halls each year. Glee 2012 is set to be the strongest showcase of major brands and niche manufacturers from the garden, landscape, home and leisure industries - something that is not available anywhere else in the UK. We hope you enjoy the show.
