Glee claims strong rebookings

Glee has 320 rebookings for 2011 - more than 60 per cent of the 2011 Glee floorplan at the Birmingham NEC.

Event director Nick Davison said:

"The rebooking figures for Glee 2011 are extremely positive. To have such a large number of companies already confirming their space puts us in a great position for building the rest of the show over the coming months. 

"The early commitment from exhibitors has also helped us to evaluate the strengths of Glee 2010, making it easier for us to identify areas of success, and those that need improving to build an even better marketplace for the garden, leisure and pet industries."

Davison added: "Rebooking exhibitors is one of our key priorities for the immediate future, as we understand that having a strong platform to build on is essential for the future success of the show. 

"We’ve got a great sales team dedicated to helping exhibitors maximise their return on investment, and I would urge any interested parties to contact the team now to avoid missing out."

Town & Country chief executive Barry Page said:

"Glee 2010 was another hugely successful venture for Town & Country, with orders taken on stand over the three days up by at least 50 per cent compared to last year.

"As sponsors of the badge holders for the last six years, we have demonstrated our continued belief in the value of the show and we are looking forward to participating once again in 2011."
